Chocolate lovers will go wild over our decadent Double Dutch Chocolate Cake, which is generously sized to feed plenty of dessert fans. It’s handcrafted from scratch by the father-and-son team behind Frost Bake Shop in Memphis. Their signature chocolate cake is made with extra-dark Dutch-process cocoa and fresh buttermilk for a moist, tender texture and intense chocolate flavor. The dessert is filled and frosted with a luscious chocolate cream cheese and butter frosting that's the perfect complement to the three layers of fresh-baked chocolate cake.

  • Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cake In Good Condition but Taste wasn't Good I bought this cake to celebrate family...50th anniversary, birthdays, engagements. We only see each other once a year. Based on reviews I talked this cake up and looked forward to it. It was a disappointment, somewhat dry and not great flavor. There were 8 of us in the condo and almost half the cake went in the trash after a few days. I had also bought a yellow cake from the grocery bakery for those not as inclined with chocolate. The store cake was very moist and flavorful in comparison and a third of the price! I do not recommend it. Also my sister noticed the icing was not creamed thoroughly and had specks of ? color was not uniform.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Sorry to be so late, but we ordered this cake for Boxing Day. The cake arrived promptly and well-packed/preserved. We left it crated until we reached our destination at Mt. Hood. We unpacked it a couple of hours before dinner and it was just beautiful - exactly as presented. We had a crowd of about 20, and there was pie, but the cake was definitely large enough to serve us all. It was AMAZING! The taste, texture, everything, just delicious. There was cake leftover, even when people had eaten their fill. We left it for my sister, who served it for dessert on New Years. She said it was just as delicious then. I would order it again in a heartbeat. Thanks!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious Chocolate Cake Wonderful texture and flavor. I was surprised at how large the cake was. I also liked that the frosting was a lighter color than the cake, which made a nice contrast.
