I made this cake for my daughter's baby shower and everyone just loved it. I used the chocolate marshmallow icing as the filling and then I iced the cake with just a chocolate buttercream icing. Yes, this is a sweet, rich cake but a crowd pleaser. I followed the cake part of the recipe exactly as written and I wouldn't change a thing. I will be making this cake again for special occasions!
I have baked this cake twice with only fair results. Both times it majorly stuck to the pan; I would recommend not only greasing and lining the bottoms of the pans with parchment (which I did), but also cutting strips of parchment to ring around the sides of the pans as well. The layers do not rise much. The taste is amazing, though, so I may experiment with the recipe until I achieve the results I want.
