I am a HUGE fan of chocolate, especially chocolate cake. I always have some kind of chocolate around the house. I need something sweet after a meal (which is pretty much always).

When I decided to make a fondant cake thought of using a chocolate cake. A dense, moist chocolate cake; what else is needed to mark a perfect occasion?
