Just like the name says, this cake is perfect for chocolate lovers. Just a thin slice of it served alongside a scoop of ice cream will satisfy your chocolate craving. I pressed chocolate wafers around the sides of the cake so that when it is cut in to, the cookies are almost like guidelines for the size of the pieces. I will definitely make it again for the next birthday party that comes along.
