This is a great 2 tone cake in which the syrupy chocolate batter "does its own thing" to the white batter. It is extremely moist and very pretty when sliced.

This cake is very delicious and all the family can't imagine that I made it by myself. By the way , this is the first recipe I tried from this site . I think that the beginning is good.

I made this yesterday for a b-day party today; have not tried it yet but I would just like to say that it was really easy to make and it looks beautiful. I put some pink, red and white candy hearts on the top. I changed it from four stars to three because while it looked great and was easy, it was on the heavy side and a bit dry but was still very good
