Good flavor, but I think it could be improved by doubling the cocoa. Most cake recipes I've tried call for at least 2 Tbls. for similar amounts of flour, sugar and fat. The only thing I did differently was I used cake flour. Even though it seems like a lot of icing, you'll need it if you are going to pipe the icing on as I did. If you are just going to spread it on, you could probably half the icing recipe. A nice little treat for my Valentines. Thanks for posting.
