With Valentines Day coming up next week, I wanted to share a recipe for the perfect chocolate cake to make for someone you love :) And this is probably the most delicious chocolate cake that I have ever tasted! My sister & I attended our first cooking class last week, where we learned to make this yummy treat. Hope you enjoy :)
