Sweet Treat Tuesday-Super Moist Chocolate Mayo Cake

This cake and icing are so delicious! My mom found this recipe in a magazine and gave it to me during the holidays. I made it as a cake for Christmas (Jesus's birthday cake) and I made it in cupcake form today for our small group. I've also made it any other time I'm craving a chocolate cake! The cake is really good, very moist, but the icing is DELICIOUS!! I could eat the icing by the spoonful, and I do! Don't be turned off by the mayo, it makes this cake so moist.
