This is where Dessert Girl's Chocolate Stout Layer Cake comes into play. Let me say, this layered cake turned out MUCH better than the last one. Parchment paper at the bottom of the pan sure did help.
The frosting, I wasn't so thrilled about. It turned out a bit runny, probably because I only used 1/2 as much chocolate as called for. So, after refrigerating, I put it into my stand mixer and beat it until it formed a thick frosting.
