    This was a rich and incredibly moist and delicious chocolate cake. My pans weren't tall enough to bake one cake to split into 3 layers so I baked it as 2 layers in 2 pans. I used some (1/3 batch) chocolate Italian meringue buttercream (from the authors Cake Bible) that I had in the freezer to make this an uber chocolate-y treat for valentine's day.

    Workes also with natural cocoa powder instead of Dutch-processed. Substituted Dreamy, creamy white chocolate frosting from the Banana refrigator cake for the Vanilla mousseline frosting. Excellent!
