Zucchini Chocolate Rum Cake
Moist, but not too moist. Perfect chocolate flavour. Added additional 3/4 cup of flour and used 1/2 cup of rum for high altitude baking. Cake is tastier the following day. Thank you for recipe!

Sweet and Spicy Chocolate Cake
Though I like this cake, I give it a four because despite the ingredients, it was not very flavourful unless you aged it. For the first few days of the life of this cake, it was quite unexceptional and bland. My only diversion from the recipe was instead of adding plain chocolate pieces, I had added chocolate with chile peppers because I wanted something with deep ethnic flavour. I topped the cake with marscapone cheese, papaya's, and strawberries. I couldn't even taste chocolate the first day I baked it. So I put it away, and then a week later heated it up again, and it was one of the best chocolate cakes I have ever had! I recommend this recipe completely, if you have the patience to age the cake for the fine flavors to come out.

Bourbon Cream Cheese Frosting
Probably the best frosting on the planet for people like me who abhor frosting. Usually I just wipe off frosting, but this one, this one I had a half inch thick on cupcakes and didn't leave any to waste! I did have to tweek the amount of liquor to 2 tblsp. like all the other reviews note. I used Appleton Estate Rum instead of bourbon. I know it would be excellent with bourbon as well, but I was using the frosting to top off key lime cupcakes, and wanted to keep the geography of the ingredients the same. Thank you so much for this recipe!
