Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate Chocolate Cake ~ May Birthday Cake

I love chocolate, and so do everyone at work, so this month I decided to try another chocolate cake.  I was looking through the recipes at Hersheys.com and found this one.  Man, is it good!! 





I made marshmallow fondant to cover the cake.  I used vanilla in it, so it was slightly off-white.  I didn't really notice it until I went to put it on the cake.  It was quite apparent when put alongside the snow white crumbcoat of cream cheese icing.

But it was pretty!  Made it look like a wedding cake.




 When I started the writing with the same snow white cream cheese icing, it stood out on the beige-y fondant, looking even more white.  I really like that.

Then when I cut into it, the dark chocolate interior made it even more apparent, how white the cream cheese icing is.

Man, isn't that something?
