Sinfully Delicious!

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter 
Explosion Cake

Happy Birthday too me! It was my birthday this past week, but being laid up like I was I didn't get a chance to make my birthday cake until yesterday.  My gift from one of my sons was to give me all the fixings to make my own birthday cake LOL I know that doesn't sound nice, but its actually what I wanted since I was given some new cake decorating paraphernalia I wanted to use.  I made the above cake by combining a couple of recipes. I used the cake explosion recipe from HERE but also swirled in plain creamy peanut butter.  I used the peanut butter frosting recipe from HERE along with the chocolate ganache recipe but omitted the addition of the peanut butter since I felt I had enough peanut butter going on.  I used the peanut butter frosting between the layers and then did a crumb coating with the frosting over the entire cake before I added the dark chocolate ganache. This cake ended up being over 8 inches tall and waaay too rich!
