I love these crazy cakes! They are moist, and inexpensive and super easy to make. The frosting looks delicious and I will have to try it. I tweaked the cake recipe a while back by using raspberry vinegar and doubled the amount of cocoa. Oh my, was it GOOD! I am thinking of trying to use my chili pepper hot vinegar in one. Might be interesting results...
