Enjoy a meal of lies and deceit we did! first off, the anticipation of the cake was exciting and definitely made the cake making process much more fun. then there was mixing the ingredients with my close friend, we were discussing how amazing each ingredient tasted (the frosting, the cake itself out of the oven...) and after each step the cake seemed closer and closer to perfection! when finished, we took pictures and played music (still alive, of course) and MAN, that cake really is SUPER DELICIOUS AND MOIST! THE CAKE IS AMAZING! 5 STARS! from the icing to the cake to the chocolate shreds i put on (BTW, a good tip to make it really nice: take a cooking bar of semi sweet chocolate and use a potato shredder and shred the chocolate, it worked really well) and the whole shabang. really, this cake is great! no lies here!

It was truly delicious and moist. Because of this, I would make one suggestion. Instead of cutting the top off of the top layer, I just turned mine upside down. While this left a large space on the side for frosting, it was less messy than trying to cut that moist cake and keep it all together would have been. Props on the great recipe! :D I also did what captboog did for the chocolate outside (though I didn't read his review beforehand lol. Great minds think alike)

Well, this cake certainly is a lie. I don't know what I did differently than everyone else who is raving about how moist it is, but my cake was as dry and as crumbly as sand. You got me again, GLaDOS.

I have now made this cake a total of two times, and it just keeps getting better! It is fairly easy to make although it is time consuming.

Didn't we have some fun, though? Remember when the platform was sliding into the fire pit and i said 'Goodbye' and you were like 'NNOO WWAAYY", and then I was all "We pretended we were going to murder you", that was great. -GladOS THE CAKE IS A LIE!!! Seriously though, this is one of the best cake recipes EVER! It's SUPER moist and rich and yummy!
