  14. So nice! I was wondering if you had any tip(s) on keeping my choclate baked goods moist? I usually have a probelm with them drying out and I want to prevent that from happening again! Thanks πŸ™‚

    • Pang

      Hi Y.K., Actually I don’t really have any tips at all. Though if you make a cake, the batter needs to be beaten as little as possible, just to combine. For that, you will get a moist cake. πŸ™‚


  15. I am going to try this cake at our Christmas Dinner and will post at a later date on how it turned out….. P.S. You have a very handsome nephew!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Congrats πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    • Pang

  16. Lauren

    This is a beautiful cake and what a precious little nephew you have!! Just wondering if this cake can be make in 8″ cake pans instead of 6″ pans?

    • Pang

      Let me know how it goes πŸ™‚

    Are you on Pinterest?

  18. Michele

    Hello Pang,
    I wonder if you can suggest a replacement for the egg whites in the frosting? I am allergic to eggs and know a good egg substitute for the cake will be gelatin, but not sure about the frosting… whipped cream cheese, maybe?
    Looks delicious and can’t wait to try it!

    • Pang

      Hi Michele,
      I am so happy for your interest. I have never used any substitute for buttercream; therefore, I would not suggest any replacement.
      Though if you are allergic to eggs, I propose that you use this frosting below instead. It will definitely go well with the chocolate cake πŸ™‚

      Caramel Cream Cheese Frosting:
      8 oz cream cheese at room temperature
      2 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature
      1/4 cup powdered sugar
      3 oz premade caramel
      In the bowl of an electric mixer, whisk together the cream cheese and butter until smooth. Sift the powdered sugar over the bowl and whisk for a few seconds. Add the caramel and mix until completely incorporated.

      Hope it helps πŸ™‚

  20. G. Moore

    Can this cake be made in 9 inch pans?

    • Pang

      Hi G. Moore,
      You might have to double the recipe, and yes πŸ™‚
      Thank you so much for stopping. Hope to see you back ‘here’ soon. πŸ™‚

  22. Luis

    This looks delicious…how do you get the frosting so white with the caramel sauce in it??? I would imagine it would color to a light tan…any way I will make this very soon…Thx for the post.
