I have been looking forward to making this cake. It is a chocolate cake with chocolate ganache and peppermint buttercream. I made a full recipe, but I made a small cake. I baked a sheet cake and cut out circles then the left over cake and frosting and ganache will be used for cake balls! Yummy! I will post those when I get them done.
I really did think about doing the ombre petal frosting technique but I just didn't want to deal with all that mess...feeling a bit lazy. I am pretty happy with the results. I sampled the cake and it is moist and delicious. I always have the best luck with Baked chocolate cakes...they are amazing!
Please take a look at what the other bakers did here. To get the recipe go here. It is really long, but don't let that shy you away from trying this beautiful and delicious cake! It really was simple to make. And might I say, I am getting pretty dang good at making the Baked buttercream! :)
Next up is Hair of the Dog Cake. Now that sounds interesting!
Enjoy and have yourself a Merry Little Christmas!
