I had made this cake for a good friend of mine on her birthday and turned out so awesome that a lot of people actually found it difficult to believe that it was homemade. I got many compliments. Thank you for such a good recipe.

   Hi Dipika, Use any cooking chocolate, do not use chocolate powder.
