    I made this cake last week and it was by far the MOST DELICIOUS cake I've EVER made, like EVER, and I've made many a cakes. It didn't look quite as graceful as Rick's did, but I absolutely positively would and will make this again.

      There are no mistakes in frosting, just happy little accidents!

              How much hot water are you using? there is no mention of hot water in the recipe on bonappetit recipe.

                paradoxlogica00 3/4 cup – it’s not listed with ingredients, but they mention it in the “recipe preparation” section.

              If I greatly decrease the amount of sugar will the structure still be the same? I'm not a fan of overly sweet things. I prefer the flavor come through with sweetness in tow rather than the sweetness punching you in face first

                Ken L. This was surprisingly not overly sweet. The addition of sour cream in both the cake and icing really helped to balance our the flavor. I’ve seen some recipes on “Healthy-ish” where they cut sugar by half in baked goods without any issues. That said, not sure how it’d work in this recipe.

              I'm concerned about Chris' mental health, he sounded absolutely psychotic when he talked about how chocolate cake should be

                how much hot water do you use in the cake? maybe i was temporarily blind but I didn't find it in the recipe. Love all of BA videos/recipes but Rick does have a special place in my heart :)

                  Antidocius it’s 3/4 cup hot water. They didn’t list it with ingredients, but it was mentioned in the instructions section.

                I swear this is the best cake I have ever made (I only made the cake). It tastes like a brownie but is a cake, I might have reduced the sugar but it was perfect and dark for me. 😍

                I'm with Chris on this one. A well-made cake needs no frosting or filling.

                                        Wouldn't it make more sense if you took the dome off both rounds, then made a four layer cake, then used both domes for crumbs?

                                          @Geoffrey Alan I just watched your video on this cake. Really good work. I like how you commented on Claire and Rick's videos together.

                                          zippy zappa zeppo zorba zoolander I tested this on my channel and removed the domes. I don’t think they wouldn’t had enough crumbs to coat the sides. And the outside of the cake had a little bit of a “skin” on the dome which may not have worked well for the crumbs.
