Rozlina has been ordering this type of cake twice, and if it was for her son's birthday, it had to be an edible image of Ultraman...and they all loved Chocolate Cake! She has tried Moist Chocolate Cake and Devil's Food Chocolate Cake....and for this year's Ultraman Cake I thought I'd let her try a Rich Chocolate Cake.
You see, my quest to look for a perfect Chcocolate Cake is still ongoing, even though the recipes that I use here all are my favourites...and this one I particularly like because it has butter (yeah, butter!) So...here goes....
