This is a superb chocolate cake, and has only 4 grams of fat per serving (but it's a small serving)

Yummy! I made this on Nov 24th'2001 for my brother's b'day party. Everyone freaked out on it. It's delicious! I garnished it with blanched and chopped almonds and red glaze cherries. Besides that, I cut it into 2 halves in the middle so as to have 2 cakes and then, spread a layer of Lali's Homemade Chocolate Pudding on one cake and covered it with the other. Then, on top of this one, I put some more of her pudding. It was "YUM"! I clicked a snap too so as to remember how much I LOVED this cake. "This is her gift to me", my brother says:)
