Chocolate Cake Deluxe

I love my chocolate cake and so does everyone that has had it. It's a staple at my dinner parties and always receives rave reviews! I made 6 batches of this cake and put them into french paper baking cups for Patti's birthday party and then piped a P on each one, they were beautiful! Its amazing how 50 miniature little cakes look all set out on the table!
