Made this cake for my boyfriend, and it was delicious. I didn't have cocoa powder for the whipped cream, so I just grated some dark chocolate and used that instead. Pictures are attached. Decorated it with chocolate shavings and strawberries.

I also chopped up strawberries and mixed them in with the cream I used for the filling in between layers. So good!

Tip - this cake is much better at room temperature. The first slice I had was when I took it out of the fridge and the cake was a little dry. I had more the next morning, and had left the cake out on the counter. It was so much better!

This is the most delicious cake i've ever made! Made it for my husband's birthday and my entire family raved about the cake. It's light & fluffy with just the right amount of sweetness. I used Milk Chocolate instead of unsweetened squares. The icing is excellent!! Will be making this cake a lot in the future.

I made this for my boyfriend's birthday and I was a little diappointed with this cake. The cake seemes a little chalky to me, despite using good quality chocolate. And I was careful not to overmix the topping, but I didn't like the texture that it had. It's wasn't as fluffy or smooth as I would have liked. I may try this cake again and make some adjustments.

made this cake into a 4 layer 9" round last nite. added the extra square of semi-sweet chocolate in... added 60% bittersweet ghiradelli morsels into the layers/batter... and when frosted, drizzled melted semi-sweet chocolate all over and toffee chips to lightly garnish perimeter of cake top. DECADENT! I'm quite the chocoholic myself.

Superb cake - not at all sickly-sweet. Good clear instructions. I left the cakes in the fridge for a while before splitting them as I felt it would be easier when they were really cold. Enjoyed by nine people so I got lots of compliments!! Thanks Steve!

Made this for Valenetine's Day Dessert. It is by far the best cake I have ever had. Very moist and fairly easy to make. I am a chocolate freak so I melted one extra square (making it 4)of unsweetened chocolate into the cake batter. YUM!!

Thanks so much for suggesting this recipe, it was exactly perfect to serve for my husband's 30th birthday cake. I made this with milk chocolate baking squares and it was so good. The texture was light and the whip cream frosting was divine. Thanks again!
