i'm a novice baker and had no problems with making this cake. it's a simple recipe, but it was too sweet for my taste. other people seemed to enjoy it, though. a few suggestions, though: whip the egg whites before adding it to the wet ingredients as it will have a more pleasing consistency; don't whisk the cocoa into the water WHILE it's boiling as you will soon be drenched in hot chocolate (i can attest to this); and choose a simple icing because it is a pretty sweet cake despite it's title as 'dark chocolate'. Also, one last note, I had to keep the cake in the oven for longer than suggested.
