      If anything is better than chocolate, it's almond flavored chocolate! Followed your directions, even though it was different amounts than the box said. The cake was so moist and the frosting was perfect. It was sooooo good. Thanks for posting.

      Chocolate and almond is a marriage made in heaven - such a pleasant change from the norm. When I have almond liquer I will add it to the cake batter (probably 1/4 cup to replace water) and omit almond flavoring.

      I used 2 eight inch pans and had a big crack in each cake layer by the time baking was finished. Maybe the nine inch pans are more suitable. The cake and frosting tasted nice, but given the choice and time, I would still prefer to make a homemade chocolate cake.
