The chocolate lovers have taken back the house.
Can you tell?
Now, if you are thinking cake on a Tuesday is a little much you are probably right. But we are not a normal household. Cake, brownies, cupcakes, frosting these are all considered legit around here, under the food group – chocolate.
Honestly, I simply made this cake because Asher needed chocolate cake in her life. She asked, and like always I could not resist her sweet little voice and face (unless of course, you tell her no). I mean really who could say no to this “Tiegy can we make chocolate cake today? I really want some frosting!”
You guys, I am telling you I have a problem. I can not say no to this girl. I am pretty sure she could get me to do just about anything.
Oh well, my mom would concur, any excuse to make chocolate cake is a good one.
You guys are going to want to make this cake. It is a chocolate lovers dream. And perfect for a Valentine’s Day treat.
No, seriously, I am pretty sure this cake is what dreams are made of. Well maybe cheese too. Like a supper melty gooey cheese.
Just look at the moist cake layered with a custard like chocolate filling and the most awesome chocolate ganache frosting. Even Kai liked this cake and trust me Kai is a tough one. Extremely tough, you don’t even know. So it is safe to say it’s a good cake. Really goooood!
This cake does take a little time to make but it is mostly just chilling the frosting and ganache, the rest is pretty simple. The hardest part about this cake was taking the pictures. Keeping Asher’s fingers out of the pictures was well, a challenge.
She is going in for the kill.

Oh, yeah she went for it.
