I have been using the Wilton Chocolate-Chocolate Cake recipe. It is very tasty but it is very dense. Does anyone have a favorite chocolate that would be good for decorating but not real dense.

Deep Dark Mocha Torte from Betty Crocker, here the link
I used it for my niece's b-day. It was a 3 tier cake and the middle one I used this recipe. The only difference is that I first covered the cake with the cream cheese filling then I poured the ganache. Hope this is what you're looking for.

I made this recipe last week and got RAVE reviews. My husband went so far as to say it was the best cake he has ever eaten!

The only chocolate cake I make anymore is the Bourbon Chocolate Cake recipe from Collette Peters. It's AMAZING and so moist!!!

Bourbon Chocolate Cake
Source: Colette's Birthday Cakes

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch salt
1 3/4 cups hot coffee
1/4 cup bourbon
5 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate, cut into small pieces
2 sticks (8 ounces) unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
2 cups sugar
2 eggs, at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F. Grease and flour two 8- or 9-inch round pans. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt.

Combine the coffee, bourbon, chocolate, and butter in a large covered metal bowl. Let stand until completely melted, then whisk together. Whisk in the sugar and cool. Whisk in the flour mixture in 2 batches, then the eggs and the vanilla.

Pour the batter into the prepared pans and bake for 45 minutes (checking after 30 minutes for even baking) or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
