This Chocolate Pound Cake is not only pretty, but also scrumptiously delicious. I love the stark contrast of the almost black of the cake and the white of the frosting.

You can use anything you like to sprinkle over the top of the frosting if you are not baking the Chocolate Pound Cake for Christmas.

And even if you bake for Christmas, the choice is always yours to use whatever topping you like. I happen to be totally in love with Candy Cane !

The cake is super moist and soft and the smell while baking is just to die for !

I wanted to add in some more Dark Chocolate Chips as well. But the batter was already quite rich and thick after the addition of the Pudding, so I let that idea go.

We used to have Marshmallow Fluff in our stores many years ago, but it seemed to have disappeared from the usual supermarkets and hypermarkets I go to.

Therefore, when I found some at a little shop, specializing in all kinds of sweets (and only 5 minutes from my house!), I was almost beyond myself with excitement.

For fellow South-Africans, or anyone who can not find Marshmallow Fluff, use either only the White Chocolate or melt some Marshmallows and stir into the melted Chocolate as below.

As the cake is very moist, it really does not need to be over frosted, but then as always, it is a personal choice

I think the contrast in colors looks great too. Also the peppermint on top is a nice touch for the holidays. And of course I'm all about chocolate. ..especially dark! Thanks for sharing, Linda.
