Triple Chocolate Cake

by foodlikecake

I now acclaim this the best chocolate cake in the world. It’s dark, rich, and fudgy, and you will want to eat more and more of it. The frosting is creamy and delicious, and obviously super chocolaty. Make this cake for every special occasion and event you can think of.
