Chocolate cake recipe for cake shaping

Do any of you know any recipes for chocolate cake that would work for cake shaping? I want to make a 3D dinosaur cake out of two 9 inch circles. I need the perfect texture that won't fall apart and won't sink. This will involve some cutting and stacking.

Also I prefer recipes like those in Vegan cupcakes take over the world (do those work perfectly for cakes??). I don't use egg replacer or nonspecific ingredients. This has to work the first time because I'm poor and it's for a birthday party.

PS- there will be a non-vegan cake there and it would be kickass if this one tasted better! :P
