Introduction

My younger sister's all-time favourite cake: she's asked for it for birthdays, christmases, other people's birthdays, and we even made it as a second serving cake for my grandparent's wedding anniversary! She doesn't know it's low-fat, low-sugar or whole-grain, either! She insists on tub chocolate icing, I prefer nothing more than a little cocoa powder and icing sugar sifed over top, or sometimes cream cheese frosting.
