Julie Chrisley Wet Chocolate Cake

Chocolate lovers beware—this cake is moist, delicious, and will have you coming back for more. Although delicate looking, the crumb is actually quite sturdy. The icing can be prepared a day in advance, however leaving the cake overnight will produce the best results (and if you're anything like me, that's a good thing).
