    OMG! I took this to a family gathering today! 4 teens, 4 adults, 2 children and it was gone! This is just the best chocolate cake and the frosting was to die for! Of course, the finishing touch were the kisses and hugs!

    My favorite chocolate cakes have always been ones made with buttermilk.But this cake is fantastic.I dont know what makes it not only moist,but melts in your mouth like a candy bar,but it is the best chocolate cake I have ever made!! It is great it doesnt call for special ingredients,but the end result is very special indeed!
