Wow - I feel like it's been weeks since I made this cake. Oh, wait - it has!
My friend Natalie invited us over for dinner one night and this was the dessert that I brought. The inside contained two layers of chocolate cake and tons of chocolate buttercream. Then I smothered the outside with more chocolate buttercream.
I wasn't 100% pleased with that so I had to call another friend to find out if I was losing my mind. The phone call more or less went like this: "Hey Leigh, should I cover my chocolate cake that already has chocolate buttercream all over it with a layer of ganache? ... Yeah, that's what I thought. Thanks, See you tonight!"
There you have it. A massive chocolate overdose. While I am getting a little tired of making this particular cake recipe - adding both the buttercream and ganache was definitely worth it.
