    M&Mers's Note:

    Moist cake with excellent chocolate flavor! and it's gluten-free! Once you've made THIS chocolate frosting, you'll use it again and again. (If you don't want the alcohol but want the flavor of Kahlua, boil Kahlua for about 30 seconds, remeasure and cool.)

      This was EXCELLENT. Very moist and truly decadent. I used Splenda instead of sugar, and it turned out wonderful. I'm diabetic and my MIL is off wheat, so this made us both happy!Thank you!

      Made this for a wedding shower and it turned out wonderfully! However, not very "cake-y"; it's quite a heavy dessert. Will definitely make again, and not just for gluten-free folks. The frosting really is to die for!
