    I only made the icing on this cake. I'll definitely be making it again...just with less sugar as it was a bit too sweet for us. I think it'd would probably also taste good made with brown sugar. It's a lovely way to make a standard chocolate cake special!

    Just made the icing -- it is fantastic and easy to work with. I agree with Wondermima -- it has a gorgeously TRUFFLE taste. Wow.

    The cake for this was good- not great and seemed a little dry. BUT the frosting is THE BEST fudge frosting, it was like eating truffles. YUM
