Lilthorner - Hi!

I think Rose’s choc butter cake recipe will hold up very well for you.  Have you done a topsy turvy cake before?  How long will the cake be on display?  How many tiers tall will it be?  What kind of frosting do you plan to cover the cake with?

In that case, I think the Rose’s chocolate butter cake will serve you well.  I hope you’ll post a photo of the finished cake!

How would the chocolate butter cake pair with a cookies-n-cream filling?  Or is there another recipe you would recommend more?

I don’t want something with too faint a chocolate flavor or, on the other end of the spectrum, a deep dark chocolate.  Just a good overall balanced chocolate flavor.

Sounds like a match made in heaven!
