This cake is delicious, and everyone who has tasted it asks me to make it. I added a homemade peanut butter frosting between the layers when my brother asked me to make a groom's cake that was "as if a peanut butter cup were a cake." It was a bigger hit than the wedding cake.
Make sure you let the ganche cool enough before frosting the cake or you'll get a big mess!
My husband has made this cake a couple of times and it is wonderful, I have the recipe in a magazine called Paula Deens chocolate celebration. After posting the photos on facebook several people requested the recipe. I am too lazy to type it out so after doing a search I am glad to have found it here and happy to post it on facebook. Thanks to the lady who took the time to type it. I am posting pictures of my husbands cake as there were no pics.
A very yummy cake that my whole family liked! I did not make any changes to the cake except for using cocoa+butter in place of unsweetened chocolate squares since we don't get them here. My frosting was slightly grainy due to the confectioner's sugar that was added towards the end. So next time I might just add it in with the rest of the sugar. Overall it was a very nice cake. Thank you for posting this recipe!
I have made this cake several times and its great! I usually decorate it with fresh raspberries on top and they complement it wonderfully!
