    Great Flavor but need more pics / Measurements on some things?

    My cakes tasted great but didn't always look exactly like the pic provided. Maybe a step to dust the pan with chocolate would've helped my "Chocolate Chiffon Cake"? It was yummy but didn't rise as much and wasn't as dark as shown. Made the "Devil's Food Cake" yesterday and it tastes Lovely. I must say that I didn't use the full amount of sugar requested for the buttercream as it was verrry sweet already when I tasted it. Taste frosting as you add the sugar. You also may want to use a serrated knife and cut the tops off the cakes for this one in order to get an even coat of frosting between the two layers. Oh and make sure you use dutch-processed cocoa, tried Ghirardelli chocolate the first time & had a problem with the baking soda/baking powder part..it depends on the cacao % so just use what the recipe asks for to avoid baking catastrophe. Can't wait to try more of these recipes. Have Fun!
