This is a wonderfully decadent recipe, without being overly sweet. It tasted like something you'd pay $12/piece for at an upscale restaurant. <br/>Notes: I subbed the dark rum with spiced rum, and to help cut a few calories, I only made half the amount of frosting called for, spreading sparingly. Also, due to all the mixing, prep time took me closer to 30 mins, and my oven runs a bit on the cool side, so it took around 32 mins to bake. <br/>I can't wait to take this to a winter party! (Not summer due to possible frosting melt and dense composition).

Very moist chocolate cake, and pretty easy to make! I made the frosting, with only 3/4 cup of cocoa, and I should have cut back the rum just a bit. Nonetheless, I'll make this again when I have a craving for something decadent!

This was amazing. It was exceptionally moist, easy to make, and had a wonderful flavor. I will definitely make it again. Even though I made the topping, we decided it was too rich for us so we put some homemade cherry topping on it instead. I threw a splash of rum into the cherries to give them some extra flavor. It was a very good mix.
