This was the first time we ever used, what is so far, my favorite chocolate cake recipe ever! Same as the last 2 blogs- http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/double-chocolate-layer-cake.
We tried to make a meringue butter cream frosting from the "Bakers Field Guide to Cupcakes" but our Meringue fell so it was a bit weird. My amazing roommate Renee was able so salvage it enough for us to use it for the sunflowers. To cover the cake and as the filling we used the basic butter cream recipe (easy and delicious!).
