This cake is incredible. I bake for my extended family a lot and I do plenty of cakes, and after eating this one they said it was the best cake I have ever made. The cake itself was rich, moist, and the perfect balance between density and airiness. The icing was a great pairing too. I make chocolate buttercream icing all the time but this recipe was far better than anything I'd done before. However it calls for 1 1/2 C of cocoa powder in the icing and after adding just 1/2 C, it tasted great so I didn't add more. It was very chocolaty already and I was worried about how it would taste if I added more. The ingredients made a good amount of icing too, which would very easily cover every layer if you split the layers horizontally like they called for. I didn't to that, so I had enough to add decorative touches and piping to the finished cake, and then I had some icing left over that I'll store for something else I make. I will definitely make this again. It is my go-to chocolate cake from now on!
