This is a very good cake overall. The caked it's self is a bit heavy (more like a pound cake), but the taste is wonderful. I used sifted cake flour spooned into the measuring cups to make sure I wasn't using too much flour which will increase the heaviness. The frosting is excellent and needs no amending, but here's how I got it to come out with no problem: Boil the heck out of the chocolate mixture! Boil it until it's hard to stir with a spoon and is extremely thick. Then cool it completely and add it to the sugar (I use baker's sugar or powdered sugar). You will only need to whip it for a minute or so to get it the right consistency. Then leave the frosted cake in a cake dome overnight to let any sugar crystals dissolve.
