Sweetapolita has a fabulous recipe for it. The minute I saw it, I knew this was my birthday cake! I must be a bit odd because I love to make myself a birthday cake. I love to bake and when my birthday comes around I always have the desire to make something super fun. I WANT to be in the kitchen making it.
But, everyone gives you crap for making your own cake!!! They say, "Oh, let me make you something" or they tell me to just order something from the fancy bakery in town. At work and at my birthday dinner no one was into me baking and bringing my own cake. Well, fine! We invited friends over for dinner and I surprised them with a super decadent dessert a few days before my birthday.
Are you a a cake or frosting person? I've discovered I'm a cake person. I loved this cake but it had me cut three 8'' cakes in half to get the 6 layers. Once all layers were frosted and assembled there as just too much frosting for me! Next time I'll just do the three layers with the toasted marshmallow frosting and then frost the outside in the malted chocolate frosting. Yes, there will be a next time!
Only 11 more months to find next year's birthday cake! Better get myself back to Pinterest!
