    Mirj's Note:

    After much deliberation on the discussion boards it was decided that certain chocolate cakes were better than sex, but nothing is better than George Clooney, except for this cake! Prep time includes chilling.

      Incredible cake Mirj. We really enjoyed this delicious cake. It was well worth the extra effort. I was a little worried at first because it didn't look done, but I let it sit the 6 hours. Am I ever glad that I tried this, the cake is smooth, dark and rich with a wonderful texture. Thanks so much for sharing.
