Angela's Story

I made this for my son, James', 14th Birthday Party and it was a big hit. The idea came from combining several different cake recipes and a little imagination. The cake is super moist but holds it shape beautifully under the rich chocolate silk frosting. Beneath each layer, there are 3, is a layer of rich chocolate ganache. To crown off the top of this beautiful cake, I used Lindt Chocolate Truffles, it is just so sinful and good ! Trust me, it is worth the effort ! ****Made Cake # 2 for my Sisters Birthday, it was a big hit ! She thought I had bought it at a bakery !!
