My friend Laura was making a birthday cake for her cousin and testing several chocolate cake recipes last week. Lucky me I get to give a taste and opinion. The winner was Ina Garten's chocolate cake with just a tweek to the recipe. This was a piece of the test cake.
And this was the finished product. She used chocolate mousse in between the 3 layers and then a milk chocolate frosting with shaved chocolate garnish. I didn't taste the finished product but I know the next chocolate cake I make is going to be this. Well, mine certainly won't look like Laura's but I'll try.
