Project: day 93: baking away/ Black Magic Cake, amazingly moist chocolate cake, so good!
• Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 3 (thank goodness my most amazing husband was able to help me frost the cake, because mine would have looked horrible!)
• Would I do it again? oh yes. This was the perfect home-made chocolate cake!
• What I would do differently: double the frosting recipe. We definitely needed more for the top!
• Items used: recipe from: http://www.justapinch.com/recipe/lisa-glass/black-magic-cake-best-chocolate-cake-ever/cake?source=fork_FB_black_magic_cake
