I did not use the frosting, but it looked like a pretty generic frosting so I thought I'd give the cake rating. This is very moist and soft, almost velvety, not over poweringly chocolatey. I used most of this cake for use in a truffle and it was so moist that it mixed in easily. Thanks for the recipe.
