I was never a big fan of calling a super moist chocolate laden cake "Devil's Food Cake." What is that all about??? Who would do such a thing? And so... I am going to call it Chocolate Midnight Cake! I LOVE that name! It is descriptive and intriguing and it just sounds good.
I embarked on this cakes journey with excitement and a little trepidation. I do not have the best luck with chocolate cakes. They are usually not chocolate-y enough and generally dry and crumble-y. Well... it must be something that I am doing wrong because most of the other baker's cakes look great and moist and deliciously chocolate-y. Not mine my friends. Mine was dense (not good dense), dry and bitter (not luscious). The frosting was also disappointing. It took WAY too long! I was hoping for a creamier frosting with a slightly thicker consistency. Instead, I found the frosting to be a little thin and the cocoa added too much bitter dryness.
For those of you that know me, you know what a terrible sport I am and so... I will not be posting a picture of my hidious cake. I am going to let all of you enjoy my fellow Heavenly Baker's cakes without the embarassment of comparing it to mine. I will take myself to the opposit end of the "Featured Baker" spot and sulk. The end.
