There's nothing better than a good friend, except a good friend with chocolate

 Homemade Frosting

 Before going into the oven


Alright, here we go. We all know that there is nothing more satisfying than a good piece of chocolate cake. It can lift your spirits, make you laugh, and for a few lucky ones, produce an out of body experience. This recipe is the best, I repeat the BEST recipe I have found yet for chocolate cake. I got the frosting recipe from a different source because the cake recipe called for white icing and I am NOT a fan of white icing. I have posted both recipes at the bottom of the page and hope you all go home and make this cake immediately, you will not regret it. Last night I got a craving for some chocolate cake, so I went searching for the best recipe I could find, something moist, rich and thick, just the way I like my chocolate cake. I stumbled upon a blog titled "Kevin & Amanda", who have all kinds of yummy recipes to share, including this one so poignantly titled "THE BEST Chocolate Cake", and they are not exaggerating. I was intrigued by a few of the ingredients, such as sour cream, chocolate chips and Jell-O Instant Chocolate Pudding. It was extremely easy to make, I literally dumped all ingredients into a large mixing bowl and mixed them up. Next came the frosting, like I said I got the frosting recipe from a different source, and the one I chose could not have turned out better for this particular cake. The chocolate buttercream frosting came from a user on All Recipes with a recipe titled "Extreme Chocolate Cake". This frosting was so creamy and delicious, while not over-sugary. I guess when you make your own frosting, the confectionar's sugar makes it light and creamy--at least that's what my mom told me. The finished product was rich, creamy, thick, chocolatey, and very moist. I am no longer looking for recipes for chocolate cake, for I have found my soul mate in this one.
