Diablo Chocolate Cake

Diablo Chocolate Cake

By Kira

Have you ever wondered why the rich chocolate cake is coined with Devil? I think its because it is simply irresistible and even the devil can’t help it.

Here is the picture of my devil’s chocolate cake. It tasted so rich chocolatey and texture was so spongey. Wow, it was delicious and I ended up eating like a devil, proving the name “Devil’s Chocolate Cake”. After we enjoyed the wonderful cake, me and my exact equal named my Devil’s Chocolate cake after the devil Diablo.
