I made this cake for my husband for his Birthday and can I just say it is divine!!! It's a little more work than your average chocolate cake but it's definitely worth the extra effort.

Note: Don’t make the frosting until the cakes are cooled, and use the frosting as soon as it is ready. If the frosting gets too stiff to spread easily, wrap the mixer bowl with a towel soaked in hot water and mix on low speed until the frosting is creamy and smooth. Refrigerated leftover cake should sit at room temperature before serving until the frosting softens.
