    Cooking to Perfection's Note:

    This is a very delicious cake! Most people haven't heard of a Tweed Cake, but it's basically a white cake with finely grated chocolate folded into the batter to give it a "tweed fabric" appearance. The cake is frosted with a buttercream frosting, and then drizzled with thinned semi-sweet chocolate to give it a shadowed affect. I make this every year for my Dad's birthday, and the entire cake is gone within 2 days. I hope you will try it; You wont be disappointed!
