How does this cake handle carving, for like a topsy turvy cake? I don't think the Hershey's cake (the one printed on their cocoa powder box) would work! It sound yummy! I cant wait to try it :D You may pm me if you like!

So this recipe would do one layer for a 9" round pan? Is that right? Which would mean it makes about 5.5 cups?
