Best Chocolate layered cake in L.A. county 2012

My sister wants a good chocolate on chocolate layered cake for her birthday can anyone suggest a rich moist cake that doesn't taste like a box cake mix. I prefer the south bay area but I'm willing to drive anywhere if it's worth it. TNA

      Yup - only true chocolate lovers need apply.

        Which chocolate cake from Jamaica's Cakes would you recommend? Simply chocolate or Chocolate Overload? Thanks.

          Agree that Susie Cakes makes the most heavenly chocolate layer cake.

            Yup again - nice layering. A bit sweet but nice and moist.

          2. Alsace lorraine in Long Beach. Stop in and try a cupcake or something beforehand.

            1. Not sure if it counts but Porto's Parisian is pretty godly.

              1. Victor Benes' Parisian is my go-to chocolate cake. It's available at most Gelson's, probably the closest of which are in Irvine or Marina Del Rey. They also have a chocolate truffle cake, which is also layered, so if you want something denser and richer, it is another option.

                One nice thing is that you can taste each cake as a petit fours for a few dollars.

                  The Parisian is on the lighter side of chocolate, but in a great way. Another Yup.
