This chocolate cake is my go-to recipe. It’s moist and delicious, and also sturdy enough to carve into novelty cakes like the ones you see on How To Cake It. I’ve been making this chocolate cake recipe for 15 years, with a few tweaks here and there, and it has never let me down, whether it’s smothered in buttercream, draped with fondant, or dripping with ganache. If you’re making one of the novelty cakes, use the pan sizes and baking times specified in the novelty cake recipe.
*Tips: Make sure your butter and eggs are at room temperature before you begin!*
