At work, we celebrate birthdays on a monthly basis. With twenty people in our department, this means I have a monthly excuse to try out new cake recipes. This month’s cake was a definite keeper. Moist chocolate layer cake with chocolate pudding between layers, and a fluffy chocolate buttercream frosting all around. I’m also having a lot of fun working on my cake decorating skills!
This blackout cake recipe comes from The Cake Book by Tish Boyle, which is turning out to be a great source for delicious, reliable cake recipes. I made this extra decadent by using Ghirardelli cocoa powder for the cake, Callebaut bittersweet chocolate for the pudding, and Callebaut unsweetened chocolate for the frosting.
