    Delicious!

    Sorry, this was not what I had hoped for. Moist, but there was the flavor of Miracle Whip that lingered. Total waste of chocolate, time and energy.

    I made this cake today and the frosting came out like thin icing. Does not look like the picture. I followed the recipe. Don't know what happened. Other than that cake was moist and flavorful. "Frosting" tasted good, too.
