    JamesDean'sGirl's Note:

    Naughty, in the BEST possible way!!!! **I usually like to let all cake batters rest for 10 minutes (in the baking pans) before they go into the oven--I find that they rise up nicer.**

      I made only the cake (from the same recipe found on a blog), topped it with chocolate icing (almost a glaze), toasted pecans and Caramel Sauce to make it a turtle cake. The blog with the turtle cake directions are here: http://cityfarmgirl.blogspot.com/2008/02/turtle-cake-tutorial.html. Glad to see this cake's been posted here--thanks JamesDean'sGirl!

      I left out the caramel, peanuts, and switched the buttermilk with skim milk and it was truly a death by chocolate cake. I added coffee to the cake and frosting. YummmmmOOOO!!!!! :)
