I made this in a 9 x 13 pan instead...just easier for me....used the rum from some drunken cherries (see other recipe from rita)....and her chocolate frosting...this was a HUGE hit - everybody loved it. Thanks for making me so popular yesterday. ;)

This cake is a keeper, my customers loved it. The next time I will use a different chocolate for a darker cake.
