I am just making this cake for my daughters wedding. It is sooooooooooo gorgeous and moist and scummy I have to keep making another one as it keeps getting eaten ( by me). I am actually doing one inch layers which I will sandwich together before icing. I am doing twelve layers to make a four tier cake. i will let you know how it turns out but up to now it is the best and easiest chocolate cake I have ever made. I am so glad I found this site.
The wedding was on Sat 4th Oct and as well as looking gorgeous it tasted fantastic, very very moist. I filled it with chocolate fudge icing between each layer and coated it with belgium chocolate roll out icing. Every one loved it and wanted the recipe. I had adapted it slightly by adding a 100gm block of chocolate to the hot water and butter and I did cook the large cakes in 1" thin layers as this made it easier to cook and fill with the fudge icing. I will certainly be making this cake in future. Mine took longer to cook than said but it was so easy to make and I did not have any failures in all the twelve layers. Thank you for a superb recipe.
