A new chocolate cake flavor I developed last week ... I call it 3-D Chocolate!  A deep, dark, decadent chocolate cake iced and filled in whipped chocolate ganache, then topped with poured chocolate ganache.  This particular cake is a 4-D Chocolate, since it's wrapped in yet another layer of chocolate slabs and tied with a ribbon!
