"This cake turned out delicious, and was pretty simple to make. I was very surprised how thick the batter was; I had to actually spoon it into the pan, because it wouldn't pour. Both the toppings were also too thick to pour - I ended up frosting the top of the cake with the white chocolate mixture, and then added some of the extra chocolate syrup to the melted mini-chips and butter so I could make the drizzle pattern. All and all, though, it was a wonderful cake, my guests totally loved it. After dessert and sending pieces home with three people there was nothing left!"
