Midnight Dream Cake

Submitted by: JO_JO_BA

Introduction

This is a rich, decadent fudgey cake with Dutch processed cocoa and sour cream. It made up the base of my dad's "Neopolitan Ice Cream" birthday cake this year. If you're feeling particularly decadent, I suggest a chocolate-malt or white chocolate-cream cheese crosting with this!

Makes 1 thick layer.
