White Choc Mud Cake with Dark Choc Frosting

I have a friend who dislikes dark/milk chocolate. I know. How can it be right? One thing though is that she eats white chocolate (which really isn't chocolate at all...). When we gather together recently, I decided to bake a cake that incorporate our likes and dislikes.

White Chocolate Mud cake with Dark Choc Frosting. Good compromise hey? This recipes comes from Donna Hay-and Bless her heart, she comes up with the most amazing stuff that is easy to do as well. It is a melt and mix recipe. Quick measurements, fold the ingredients, spoon into prepared pan, put it in a preheated oven and viola...cake appears.

It was a moist cake and the dark chocolate frosting certainly adds to the flavor. To me anyway. She scraped the dark choc frosting off.
