The Best Chocolate Birthday cake?

lulubelle | May 4, 2010 08:02 AM

One of my best friends turns 40 next week. He's asked for the most decadent chocolate cake ever, with the stipulation that it be a "regular" cake, not a flourless one, and that it also have chocolate frosting.

He's not a fancy guy, but he loves food, and I would really like to make him something spectacular for his birthday. I'm a pretty experienced baker, so something that involves multiple steps is fine, but at the same time, I know that candied orange and that sort of thing is wasted on this occasion.

What's your absolute best birthday cake?
