Happy Thursday, Everyone!
I returned home from my brief visit to France two days ago, and am so looking forward to sharing two new travel posts with you all. Yay! (Because, Paris!)
Now, let’s chat about nonsense for a moment before discussing this yummy chocolate cake, okay?
- April Fools’ Day: I was hesitant to entirely believe any article that appeared in my newsfeed yesterday… so though I was 99.99% certain that this was a joke, I couldn’t help but be hopeful. And this. OMG.
- Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children: I’m currently loving this spine-tingling read by Ransom Riggs. Also, how cute are he and his wife? Life goals.
- Hearts: This is perfection.♥ Hot Cross Cinnamon Rolls! ♥ I adore this outfit. ♥ The Mind.
So… this cake.
Decadent, rich, chocolatey deliciousness. That is this cake.
The recipe is (barely adapted) from the lovely Molly of My Name Is Yeh‘s Marzipan Moose Cake, which she herself based off Magnolia Bakery’s cupcakes. It’s amazing. Seriously. (And freezes remarkably well, so don’t worry about eating/serving/decorating all four layers at once!)
xoxo! (Go bake a cake!)
I love how dark and rich this chocolate cake looks, simply divine!
Thanks so much, Laura! This cake is amazing. xx
This chocolate cake looks so rich and chocolate-y! Love your tips for how to make each layer a separate dessert (one layer crumbled over ice cream!! That’s brilliant! 🙂 )
Thanks, Matea!! 😀
