Bake this cake in a 13x9 pan or as cupcakes in fun paper liners. I am a sweet and salty addict, so I sprinkle popcorn on top. —Susan Scarborough, Fernandina Beach, FL

"The mix for the chocolate cake was really good but the icing was a little runny. It was good but runny. So if you decide to do a torte style cake suggest adding less milk so the icing is thicker."
