Hi all, I have a wedding cake due this weekend and one of the layers is chcoclate. I have had really bad luck with scratch chocolate cake recipes that taste rich and are sturdy enough to stack. This is for the bottom tier of a 3 tiered cake. Can anyone suggest a great recipe? Thanks in advance for your thoughts and feedback!

Use good chocolate, not chips, not stuff from the grocery store, good chocolate. And I brew strong coffee too.

I recently made the "chocolate lover's dream cake", from this site, for one of the layers of my daughter's mini-wedding cakes. Everyone raved at how good the cakes were (I did not use the glaze).

I used the chocolate WASC, then made a simple syrup with coffee instead of water and brushed that on it - yummy!

It starts with a mix, but the Darn Good Chocolate Cake from this site is wonderful. I use hershey's syrup for the liquid instead of water or milk.

The Darn Good Chocolate cake recipe is by far the best chocolate cake I have had. I have made this cake so many time and everyone raves that it is the best chocolate cake they have ever tasted.

Oh yeah, it is just to die for. I chop up a bunch more chocolate and toss into the pans before I bake too. Holy moley....yum!!

I have made the darn good chocolate cake, a chocolate cake from another site and a chocolate WASC. The chocolate WASC was the sturdiest and easiest to work with for me. The darn good chocolate cake was slightly better tasting but wasn't as easy to handle.

I recommend the chocolate WASC based on sturdiness, and it tastes good too!
