Chocolate Chocolate Fudge Cake
“Chocolate! I haven’t baked with chocolate in …forever!”
Ok. A chocolate cake seemed in order – but I wanted something more. Chocolate ganache and chocolate buttercream have been my go-to…what to do to shake things up a bit? Chocolate fudge seemed to be the natural chocolate escalation.
This simple chocolate fudge filling was delicious… chocolate, butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, & milk.
As I was building the cake, I became nervous the filling and the cake would not be distinguishable and might appear just one flat brown image. I added a thin line of vanilla buttercream to give each layer of cake some distinction. I want to have the courage to let the filling and the cake stand on it’s own without a contrasting component. That’s just me being insecure about the final product.
I do love using my Fiesta Ware whenever I have the chance.
I am grateful for my life partner and his unwavering support of my varied pursuits.
