    Chef #603588's Note:

    Another recipe I am considering as a weight conscience birthday cake substitution. I'm not very big on the bittersweetness of dark chocolate, but the picture looks yummy and it's only 222 calories! The last 3 ingredients are for the frosting. NOTE: be sure to use organic unsprayed rose petals for the top.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 10

    Yield:

    cake

    Units: US | Metric

    Frosting

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
    2. 2
      Lightly spray an 8-inch springform baking pan with cooking spray.
    3. 3
      In a small bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, ground almonds, salt and baking soda, and set aside.
    4. 4
      Using a standing or handheld mixer set at medium speed, beat the eggs and sugar for 4 full minutes until pale and fluffy. On low speed, beat in the grated beets, followed by dry ingredients. Add the buttermilk and coffee, and beat until the batter is smooth.
    5. 5
      Pour into the pan and place in the middle of a hot oven and bake for 30 minutes. Test with a toothpick inserted for doneness; it should come out clean. Bake for an additional 5 minutes if needed.
    6. 6
      Cool for 10 minutes or so in the pan and unmold onto cooling rack. Cool on a wire rack until cold.
    7. 7
      To make the icing, prepare a double boiler.
    8. 8
      Combine all the ingredients and gently stir until the chocolate is smooth. Stir occasionally until the mixture thickens.
    9. 9
      With the cake still on the wire rack, pour the icing liberally over the top of the cake and let it drip down the sides. Transfer onto a plate or cake stand for serving and garnish with rose petals.
