Rustic Naked Chocolate

My best friend V doesn’t do cake in any other form but chocolate. Though she lives thousands of miles away she insisted I bake a chocolate cake for sure. And like I always do for her ;), I complied  and whipped up my Naked chocolate delight in her honor.
This one is for the God Mother of my son-

    In the photo the cake seems to be made in layers but you didn’t mention that in the recipe. How did you accomplish the layers?
