Remember this yumminess???? I am telling you. This is the BEST. The BEST. Cake I have ever had. EVER. In my life. Seriously. Make time to make it. Today would be good.
This is a Triple Chocolate Cake with peanut butter filling with a chocolate topping. Look at that chocolate just oozing over the sides! I got this recipe from Smitten Kitchen. Check it out! Her pictures are wonderful and as soon as I saw her post about it I just knew I had to have it!
I showed it to Samantha who declared that she must have it for her birthday. At their age, they love making their own cakes! As a side benefit to myself, her birthday is 2 days after mine and we usually share a cake. So I didn’t make any of this! Or do the clean up! LOL
Here are the oldest girls getting ready to bake the cakes!
Putting them in the oven. Now here I must point out that the parchment paper is sticking up. I was not home at this point and I think they misunderstood the directions. The parchment paper should just be a circle on the bottom of the pan. 🙂
And out of the oven…hmmm…I’m salivating here.
Notice the dimpliness of the cakes on the sides? LOL That would be from the parchment paper. That’s okay. They know for NEXT TIME!!! And one of those big indents..that would be the 2-year-olds fault. She loved it. Here they are in the freezer. Makes it easier to spread the frosting! (Thanks Deb!)
Make the cream cheese peanut butter frosting and start layering! Cover the first cake, add the second cake, cover the second cake, add the third cake, and then cover the whole thing – top and sides.
Now make the topping. Roy used a double boiler and whisked away.
Pouring it on top.
Spreading it out….. hmmm….
Oh. My. Gracious. Must make again soon!!
