      I had a different cake recipe so just made the frosting. I too had to make extra to cover a 2-layer cake, but it was AWESOME. I did add a touch of whipped cream to make it a little more spreadable, since I'm frosting-application-challenged. Thanks Syd!

      Thanks for posting this! We LOVED it! I only used the cake part because I needed a great chocolate cake for my little girl's 6th birthday. She wanted a chocolate Little Mermaid cake. It turned out so light and fluffy plus it was very moist and delicious! What a great cake. I used semi-sweet chocolate because that's what I had on hand. It was just perfect. Thanks, Syd!
