Chocolate Cake with a Chocolate Satin Glaze

My son Noah is a chocolate-a-holic.  Dark chocolate, milk chocolate, semi-sweet, it doesn’t matter.  He loves all of it.  I think it’s kind of funny because I am not a big chocolate fan.  I will admit that (thanks to him) I do eat more chocolate things now than I did before.

I made this chocolate cake for a recent get together with friends and it was a HUGE hit.  I think the whole thing was gone in record time!  The satin chocolate glaze is to die for and could be used on so many other things besides this cake.  I already have several other ideas in mind for this glaze too!
