I Am On A Mission To Find My Dream Chocolate Cake!!

I have been craving a really nice chocolate cake. The type that does not have a dry sponge, but has a nice soft sponge and lots of buttercream chocolate topping and also some chocolate buttercream filling. I am not asking for much, but can't seem to find my ideal chocolate cake anywhere! Most supermarkets sell the ones that either have very little toppings or very dry sponge :( I am on a mission to find my dream chocolate cake

Good luck. I love a good chocolate cake. But it has to be moist, dense, and almost gooey with lots of creamy buttery icing and filling. I've had cakes that were too dry and crumbly, cakes that had no flavor, and cakes whose frosty is too gritty and grainy. Most bakeries use standard mixes for their cakes, so it's hard to find one that fits all my requirements.

I don't like cakes from commercial bakeries most of the time. Nothing like a homemade one.

@marlina I agree. Bakery cakes are made from mixes anyway, unless it's a specialty shop that bakes them from scratch. That's pretty rare around here.

The fun will be in the tasting, I'm sure! I just got a recipe for a Coca Cola cake that's simply chocolate cake mix with diet coke and then frosted. I'm making it for my nephew's visit since this is one of his favorite chocolate cakes. It is moist and tastes wonderful, but I'm sure it's not what you're seeking! lol

Love Chocolate cake.what is a dry sponge?

@amadeo That's when the cake has no moist texture and is crumbly and dry, and usually flavorless. The word "sponge" illustrates how much moisture in the form of butter, oil, eggs, milk, etc. are in a cake. If you've ever eaten a nice rich banana bread, then that is a "moist sponge." A "dry sponge" would be along the lines of the texture of cornbread.

Grocery store cakes leave a lot to be desired. You need to make your own.

Having with cream or ice cream helps take the edge off the sweetness I find.

How are you at cooking? Maybe you could just make it yourself and then you know it would be what you like. I really do not like chocolate cake at all. My son won't eat ANY cake unless it is chocolate with chocolate frosting. I have never liked it. He does not take after me with his food likes.

I used to work in the bake shop of a large grocery store in the Chicago area. I know in that bake shop they will make a cake just about anyway you want. Have you tried that?

They can be quite expensive though. I only want a cake for myself. They usually specialise in big celebration party cakes.

@gudheart Ask for a smash cake only, you know the ones people buy for their 1 year old baby. I bet they would do that.

@gudheart It's a quote from the game, Portal. As you're going from level to level, you discover that the AI is lying to you. She's been promising cake through your whole experience, but your predecessors have scribbled the truth on the walls : The cake is a lie.

Pepperidge Farm does a nice chocolate cake. I used to love german chocolate ones but now they are so expensive and aren't near as good as they used to be. My BFF puts cherry filling in hers where the one filling goes on the cakes. It is interesting. Good luck on your search.
