Cake Decorating Community - Cakes We Bake

I am in need of a really good Chocolate Sponge Cake recipe.  I generally use a box mix for my cakes, but really want to branch out and start making them from scratch.  I have to make a Groom's cake at the beginning of September and would like to do a chocolate sponge with a chocolate mouse filling on one layer and a nice whipped cream filling in the other. 

Does anyone have a recipe I could use?  Also, I recently purchased a Kitchen Aid mixer.  If you have a recipe, could you please be specific about speed settings and attachments.  I still get a bit confused.  Thanks.

I agree with Jessie. The Hersey chocolate cake receipt is great and so easy to make. I usually double the receipt.

So, I finally finished my Deadliest Catch cake I was requesting the recipe for.  Thanks for all the insight.  I have posted pics of the cake.  I would love some feedback.  Thanks.
