If you choose to used his icing, he several versions. Use 3 sticks of butter instead of 2. One version has it up to 4 sticks, but I haven't tried it yet.
I agree, Cakeman Raven recipe but I cut the oil even more, I only use 1 cup oil (though the recipe says 1 1/2 cup) and I increase the cocoa powder and vanilla
