Dark Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2007
This cake is a lifesaver! We were stranded by a snowstorm on my daughter's birthday -- I had planned to make an easy box cake...but couldn't get to the store so I searched for a quick chocolate cake..ended up here. LOVED THIS CAKE! I used a whole cup of cocoa (Ghiradelli) and a little extra sugar and I also added a couple of pinches of cardomom. After it cooled I whipped up some heavy cream with vanilla and confectioners sugar and spread it on 1 layer and put 3/4 of a can of cherry pie filling on top (after straining off most of the cherry juice), covered the rest of the cake with the whipped cream, put the remaining cherries in the middle of the cake and then covered the whole thing with finely grated chocolate. THIS was excellent -- my version of Black Forest Cherry Cake. Excellent.
