This is my version of the Chocolate Cake IV from Southern Living.
The Southern Living version has a mocha cream filling as well as a Coffee Liqueur Ganache. My clients didn't want anything mocha or coffe flavored, so I adjusted it as necessary.
Because it needed to serve at least 25 people, I doubled the recipe. It has 4 9" layers as opposed to 3 8" layers that you see in the bottom photo.
Because I made it for someone else, I wasn't able to cut it open to see the inside.
Here is the photo from Southern Living:
