I'm a pretty good cook, but kind of a hit or miss baker, so I was a bit scared after reading some reviews. This was my first time making a cake and frosting from scratch but the cake came out perfect. I'm usually not one for chocolate cake or frosting but I do LOVE rich, dark chocolates and this cake totally satisfied my chocolate tooth. It was decadent! I used mostly 70% cocoa for all the chocolate, and made the frosting and ganache first. I did have to reheat the ganache a little bit to get it to spread but then let it chill before adding the frosting. The cake alone is absolutely delicious even without the toppings, I will definitely make it again!
