Questions, Comments & Reviews

I did make this cake and it is very good. The idea of using melting chocolate chips as a frosting is great...with all the different types of chips they make now, I'm going to try it with some other varieties. Again, thanks for a great recipe.

What an easy and simple little cake! I'm going to whip one up right now...thanks!
