WHAT A WONDERFUL CAKE, & a great recipe that I followed almost to the end ~ Instead of the sugar-free chocolate syrup, I used some homemade chocolate syrup & was sinfully pleased with the results! Thanks for a great taste treat! [Tagged, made & reviewed as a PRESSIE in the Aus/NZ 12 Days of Christmas Recipe Swap]
