My son loves chocolate mint, so I picked this cake to make for his 13th birthday. I would say the cake was OK, but not fantastic. The mint layer did taste good and was just the right amount of mint taste, not too strong. However, if I made this recipe again, I would use a different frosting recipe. After completing the frosting as directed, it was more like a glaze and way too runny to actually use to frost the cake. It took over an hour for the frosting to cool and thicken enough to put on the cake and that hour included time spent cooling in the refrigerator.
Also, the cake layers took less than 25 minutes to cook. I checked them after 21 minutes and they were done. If I had left them in the full 25 minutes, they would have been overcooked.
Otherwise, this was an easy to make cake recipe with acceptable results.
