Chocolate and More Chocolate!

When stacking cakes be sure to use something like straws or doll rods
to give the upper layers support, I used lollipop sticks here.

This cake has three layers to give it a chocolate fountain look.
When serving a crowd of people sheet cakes are easiest to serve from.
The bottom of this cake is an 11X14 sheet cake, which will serve 40-50.
I added an 8" round (with supports under it) and then a small bunt cake.

I placed a long straw down the small cake all the way through
to the plate of the middle cake to make sure the top cake would not slide any.

Ice and decorate.
I didn't spend alot of time making this one smooth
because I added the melted chocolate.

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler
and add a little oil,
blend completely,
this will keep it from getting completely hard.

Fill a bottle and coat the top of the cakes and then drizzle over the sides.

Add any decorations you have while the chocolate is still a little warm (not hot!).
