Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting

Here is a chocolate cake that is really yummy. My husband likes the cake with peanut butter icing. I prefer it with a chocolate cream cheese frosting and a raspberry filling.

Hurricane asked for a train cake. I dyed the icing green. A lot of food coloring. Peanut butter does dye just if you were wondering.
