My husband brought this recipe home. He had copied it out of a recipe book at work. He has never done this before so I had to make it. We have made it twice in two weeks. It is really chocolatey and rich so be prepared. I have never used the glaze recipe, I just find a chocolate frosting recipe here on 'Zaar. I would like to try it with peanut butter frosting. This is a big cake so make sure to measure your pan and make sure it will hold 12 cups.
