Hershey’s Heritage Chocolate Cake Recipe

I really wanted to make cake so my mom said that we would. She said we would us the recipe for www.hersheykitchens.com   Then she said we did not have all the ingredients. So she sent my brother and my dad to get the missing ingredients .After they came back I started baking away. Then we put the cake in the oven and started to eat dinner, after dinner was over we started watching TV. Then the timer went off I rushed over to turn of the timer and to look at the cake. Then my mom came over to take the cake out of the oven .While it was cooling I was making the frosting and icing. The icing was very biter so I added the sugar. Then I tasted it tasted so much better! Then I put some frosting one each layer. Then I poured icing all over the cake.then I let the frosting freeze to the cake. About an hour later my mom did something that was good .she cut the cake early .Man did it taste good! It was amazing! It was awesome! I liked so much!
