      I made this for my hubby's birthday and he loved it! I usually don't make layer cakes, so this was a real treat for him and my children as well. We are chocolate addicts, so the only thing I did different was, for the cake batter, to use 1/2 a cup regular cocoa and 1/2 a cup of special dark cocoa. For the icing, I used 1/2 a cup of regular cocoa and 1/4 cup of special dark cocoa. Wow, the cake is rich and we love it that way! The icing was perfect and covered the cake just right. With any cake recipe, I have to make it a few times to get it just right. I cooked it for 35 minutes and think next time I will cook it for 30 minutes, as it was a tad dry. This of course, is not the recipe's fault~it is mine :-). The cake is beautiful and the taste is incredible! Thanks so much for a delightful treat today, Mirj.
