    Missy Wombat's Note:

    This is a foolproof moist chocolate cake. Remember mayonnaise is just eggs and oil. Great recipe from Sally Pasley's Tao of Cooking cookbook.

      I only made the icing on this cake. I'll definitely be making it again...just with less sugar as it was a bit too sweet for us. I think it'd would probably also taste good made with brown sugar. It's a lovely way to make a standard chocolate cake special!

      Just made the icing -- it is fantastic and easy to work with. I agree with Wondermima -- it has a gorgeously TRUFFLE taste. Wow.
