All questions

I accidentally added 3 tsp of baking soda when a recipe called for 1/2 powder, 1/2 soda. Will my chocolate cake be edible?

I really don't want to rebake. It seemed to come out of the oven okay. I just don't want it to be inedible.

Ingredients include
Cocoa powder
Sugar
Flour
Vanilla extract
Baking powder/soda
Boiling water
Milk
Vegetable oil
Salt

Thanks!

If it didn't collapse, you should be fine. Try, if you can, to trim off a tiny bit and try it.

But you might taste some of the baking soda in the cake.
