Dreamy Chocolate Cake With Frosting

Print PrintShare with Friends


Wow! The first time I tasted this cake I knew it would be a hit. Don't let the long ingredient list dissuade you, it includes the frosting. Easy as pie, you start with a mix, and it really does taste better the next day. The cooked frosting is scrumptious, it is not too sweet and is just the right texture.
