The cake turned out great. I used dark chocolate chips (that's what I had on hand) and for the glaze, I used semisweet baking chocolate. It was all excellent. The glaze was, however, very thick, and I just spread it on top like frosting. I never seem to be able to "drizzle" correctly. But it is a wonderful, thick, fudgy, but not overly sweet, frosting. This recipe definitely will be made again.

I didnt make the cake, however I did make the glaze from this recipe to top another cake, and I liked it alot. I will be making this glaze from now on to top most of my cakes, it was a thin chocolate glaze/frosting. I liked it because it wasnt as rich as a frosting, but still kept together well like a frosting. Thanks for the recipe
