No-egg chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting

So I couldn't get the picture to upload for this one, but that's okay because it looks disgusting, but it melts in your mouth. Mmm...
I actually made this one to celebrate Chrissy's birthday from afar. I talked to her on the phone and we decided the best way for me to celebrate 2000 miles away would be to make this delicious family recipe. Sammy (my 3-year old) helped.
If you're in a depressed-I-want-to-eat-an-entire-cake-by-myself kind of mood, this one will suit you marvelously.
If you're in a happy I-need-to-celebrate kind of mood, perfect.
If you have a bunch of extra peanut butter from WIC and don't know what to make of it, divine.
Go ahead, try it.

The cake is also special. It is a no-egg chocolate cake.
