    There's no need to use that parchment paper,most likely if it still has some warmth it will adhere to the plate

    No coffee? Should always add a little coffee or espresso powder to a chocolate cake. Really deepens the chocolate flavour.

    Where do I begin. I've been cooking in the kitchen for 35 years. Making various recipes from cookbooks and internet. I seen this recipe on the internet and it sounded so good. So I decided to look it up on USclip. Show and Tell I've always believed in. Watching you make this recipe looked so easy for my skills. Well, I made the cake portion in a true 350° oven. Baked it for the time you specified. A little overdone. Not bad though. (actuality, I baked it for 20 mins. and toothpick tested it.)(it needed more time. 10 mins. more)(28 mins. all together would have done it). Still came out ok. Got it out of the pans no problem. It felt moist and springy and I was happy with that. Now, let's do the frosting. Followed the frosting recipe to the T. And it was runny. Added more powdered sugar. (1 cup more). It's still kinda runny. Ok, refrigerate for 20 mins. stirring every 10 mins. Now it looks pretty good. (So, I thought). Began frosting the Cooled Cake and the frosting began to run down the cake. Got MAD. Frosted the cake from Top to Bottom and watched it just run down the cake. I believe you used cake strips to bake your cake. I believe you refrigerated your frosting. I believe you added Cool Whip to your frosting. All in All. Your editing Sucks!

    Tip add some instant coffee too your hot water it really do bring out the chocolate flavor. I do that every time I make Hershey Perfect Chocolate Cake. This is so Deja Vu I mean I'm really bugging out because today I decided I was going to make that chocolate cake. last weekend I made a carrot cake with white chocolate cream cheese frosting. I absolutely loved your video. I most definitely is going to make this chocolate cake tomorrow.
