I made this for a St. Paddy's day party and it was a hit. I followed the recipe and directions for the cake as written, and it came out moist, light and tender, with a rich chocolate flavor. I would reduce baking time by 5 minutes due to the cake developing a bit of a crust on the edges. I trimmed it, which made icing a bit more challenging due to crumbs. Speaking of crumbs- If presentation is important to you, I'd recommend making extra frosting for a crumbcoat prior to the final icing of the cake. The Bailey's frosting is excellent- I used the Hazelnut flavor of bailey's and it was scrumptious.
