I made this cake for my mother's Birthday. This was a very rich, very chocolately, slightly heavy cake. I used milk instead of water and heated it to almost boiling and mixed in a heaping teaspoon of instant coffee and 2 ounces of semisweet chocolate. I made two 9 inch round cakes and I filled and frosted the cake with a chocolate raspberry fudge frosting, covered the whole thing in chocolate ganache, and then made another batch of ganache that I chilled, whipped, and used to pipe decorations around and on top of the cake. I decorated the cake with sliced, toasted almonds and edible flowers. It was sooooo good. Never before had I completely understood the meaning of 'Death by Chocolate'...
