I'm baking a two-tiered fondant covered cake for my son's 3rd birthday next week...he wants "sherman" chocolate (lol!) for one of the tiers, and I've tried searching the recipe section for a good recipe, but the search function keeps redirecting me to the front page. Can anyone help me out with a good recipe that holds up well under fondant? This is my first time using it, so I want to make sure I've got the right kind of cake under it.

The only recipe, in my opinion, is the original. Get the green box of Baker's Chocolate (it has German's Sweet on the label) and use the recipe in the box. It is very moist and delicious. I also use the filling and icing recipe, but you need to cook it a few more minutes than it says on the label because otherwise it will be a little too runny. Since you are covering it in fondant you can use the pecan coconut icing as a filling.

oops, I totally missed the covering it in fondant part but if that's what you want to do just leave off the glaze icing and ice it with dark chocolate buttercream or something icon_smile.gif

Thanks, both of you! I have to admit, that epicurious cake sounds divine! Can't wait to try it out!

I agree about the recipe on the label. It's excellent!
