Fantastic! I made this cake this past weekend for a family celebration, and everyone agreed it's a keeper. I didn't have 3 8-inch square pans, but my math person assured me that 3 9-inch round pans have nearly the same volume, and she was right. Presentation not quite as stunning as the picture with the squares, so am planning to buy the 8" squares, now that I know that I will be making this again. The Chocolate Velvet Cake Batter is very good and would work for other cakes.

I am giving this two stars because I have not made it yet. I don't like using shortening in anything! Has anyone used butter in place of the shortening in the cake? So, instead on 1/2 cup shortening and 1/2 cup butter, I would like to use 1 cup butter. Has anyone tried this?

Oh how gorgeous. I am going to make this for our family Christmas dinner. I will up-date and review after the holiday. Looks so yummy.
