"This is the cake from the game Portal, made using the recipe from the game Portal. It is all lies!"

Servings Per Recipe: 16
"Enjoy a meal of lies and deceit we did! first off, the anticipation of the cake was exciting and definitely made the cake making process much more fun. then there was mixing the ingredients with my close friend, we were discussing how amazing each ingredient tasted (the frosting, the cake itself out of the oven...) and after each step the cake seemed closer and closer to perfection! when finished, we took pictures and played music (still alive, of course) and MAN, that cake really is SUPER DELICIOUS AND MOIST! THE CAKE IS AMAZING! 5 STARS! from the icing to the cake to the chocolate shreds i put on (BTW, a good tip to make it really nice: take a cooking bar of semi sweet chocolate and use a potato shredder and shred the chocolate, it worked really well) and the whole shabang. really, this cake is great! no lies here!"
"It was truly delicious and moist. Because of this, I would make one suggestion. Instead of cutting the top off of the top layer, I just turned mine upside down. While this left a large space on the side for frosting, it was less messy than trying to cut that moist cake and keep it all together would have been. Props on the great recipe! :D I also did what captboog did for the chocolate outside (though I didn't read his review beforehand lol. Great minds think alike)"
"Well, this cake certainly is a lie. I don't know what I did differently than everyone else who is raving about how moist it is, but my cake was as dry and as crumbly as sand. You got me again, GLaDOS."
"I just made this cake again for my grandmothers' brithday. she wanted yellow cake mix . It turned out AMAZING! I love this cake recipe and will use it again and again!"
"I have now made this cake a total of two times, and it just keeps getting better! It is fairly easy to make although it is time consuming."
"This cake turned out WAY better than I expected! Thanks for sharing!"
"Hey i made this cake with 2 of my friends :) In the end, it was EXTREMELY delicious and moist, and also disgustingly delicious! All portal fans should give this recipe a go :) Celebrate the release of Portal 2 April 19! :D"
"Didn't we have some fun, though? Remember when the platform was sliding into the fire pit and i said 'Goodbye' and you were like 'NNOO WWAAYY", and then I was all "We pretended we were going to murder you", that was great. -GladOS THE CAKE IS A LIE!!! Seriously though, this is one of the best cake recipes EVER! It's SUPER moist and rich and yummy!"
"We plan on making this cake for my son's birthday tomorrow... along with singing the song from the closing credits lol! He's turning 18 so it's high time we embarrass him in public XD"
"It's delicious and moist! I made it for my boyfriend's birthday and it's really really good. I chopped up some of the chocolate chips to imitate the surface of the cake in the game."
"I made this for a Birthday/NewYears party. Everyone loved it! I used Devil's food cake in mine, and replaced the chocolate chips with almonds though."
"This cake is a very rich, delicious recipe that I recommend for game lovers and cake-eaters alike. It was my first big cake recipe, so I also recommend it for new cooks as well as veterans of the kitchen. It tastes great, and when it's completed, looks delightful. Five stars!"
