This chocolate cake is my son's all time favorite cake.  He loves my chocolate cake and cheese cake.  He only eat these two cakes I baked.  I baked these two cakes the most. Chocolate cake this week , cheese cake next week.  WB will ask " when are you going to bake butter cake for me ? "   * wink , wink...I don't want to bake butter cake for him...reason being it is too rich for him and bad for only on this birthday I will bake a butter cake for him ..meaning Butter Cake is a once a year cake ! :p  The children are young and they can afford to eat more of cheese and chocolate LOL! lucky Piggies :)
