      This is a marvelous chocolatey dream cake! Light and fluffy and delicious! I made it for a dinner party. Baked it in round layer pans. i froze one for another day. Sliced the other crossways and filled it with chocolate reddi whip and mixed fresh berries macarated in Kahlua, then topped it with more whipped cream and spotted the top with more berries. Yummo was it good, a big hit!! Thanks for posting!!
