Chocolate Jody - Cake from Heaven
40 mins (prep 25, cooking 15)
7 ingredients
12 servings
It only took one bite to put me in "Dessert Heaven", and you won't believe how easy it is to make. :) I was first introduced to this cake at my daughter's wedding reception. This was just one of the dessert choices. Kelly spoke with the caterer, (thank you Debbie) and she was gracious enough to give us her recipe. She also gave us the recipe for the salad.....Kelly's Wedding Salad - Kelly's Wedding Salad Note: The glaze is my own recipe. The caterer used chocolate frosting. Cooking time does not include the time needed for baking and cooling the cake.
