I've been seriously craving chocolate cake for almost 2 months.  I needed a reason to make one, so I've been patiently waiting for Easter.  And here it scrumptious chocolate Easter cake!  It was by far the best one I've ever made!

(original recipe found at delectabledeliciousness)

So, are you wondering what this chocolate cake has to do with Easter?  Haha, me too!  Hmm...well, besides my cravings for a chocolate cake, and Easter being the nearest approaching holiday...We did make a big meal & had family over, so it seemed like the perfect dessert.  From now on, I think it will be my traditional Easter cake.  Besides, every celebration needs a cake, right?!
