    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    this cake is nothing short of amazing, it is meant to be baked in three pans, baking in anything less will not produce the best results -- see my Kittencal's Chocolate Frosting/Icing

      Made this for dessert with company coming and it was good. I have had others that are better (Wacky Cake). This cake came out kind of dry, which was part of the problem, because I love a nice moist cake. I may try it again sometime and see if it turns out differently the second time.
