Note from the Kraft Kitchens

Thank you. We heard your feedback and retested this recipe. We discovered that cake mix package sizes have been reduced since we developed this recipe. We have updated the recipe to add 1/4 cup milk to the cake batter to improve the consistency of the batter. Thank you for your input.

How to Make Chocolate Curls

Microwave chocolate on HIGH a few seconds to warm it slightly. Draw vegetable peeler slowly over flat bottom of each chocolate piece to form thin curls.

    My family and guests loved it, made it about 1 years ago and am going to make it again tonight. The only thing I changed was instead of chocolate shavings, I used fresh raspberries It was a hit.

    I have made this recipe several times. It always comes out just like the picture. I have brought it to several parties, and everyone always believes it comes from a bakery shop! Looks great, tastes great and makes me look like a star! :)

    This cake is delicious. It also have a great presentation when done correctly. I made this for Christmas last year and I'm making it for Easter this year. It is very sweet, but I tend to like the sweets. I just cut the sweetness with vanilla ice cream!
