Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Frosting

Baby M turned 6 months couple months ago and I decided to make a fondant chocolate cake to celebrate with my family. It was my first attempt to make a fondant cake. The decorations can be improved but the chocolate cake turned out very yummy. The cake was very rich but not too sweet. You can already smell the rich chocolate flavor as soon as you cut the cake. I have used Hershey’s Perfectly Chocolate Chocolate Cake recipe. Everyone loved it!20121209-094932.jpg
