Turn up the YUM on chocolate cake by adding crunch and an irresistible Caramel Frosting! A layer of chocolate crunch is hidden inside the cake for an extra bit of yummy surprise.
This Chocolate Crunch Layer Cake could not have been more delicious (evidence: my inability to stop stealing bites out of the fridge), but I also love that it didn't take me hours upon hours to make. The cakes were baked in under 30 minutes, I let them cool, then I wrapped 'em up and tossed them into the freezer till the following day. The rest was easy-peasy because I love assembling and decorating cakes. It's like creating art. Delicious art.
There are two "stars" in this show and I can't decide which takes the cake (ha!). Star #1: the chocolate crunch that decorates the outside of the cake and that is hidden inside. I LOVE this crunch and want to add it to every cake I make from now on. Star #2: the Caramel Buttercream Frosting! Oh. My. Goodness. This stuff is incredible. Now, I am a huge lover of frosting and I don't know that I've ever made one so delicious in my life. It may even win over my Lemon Buttercream Frosting and my Peppermint Buttercream Frosting, which is a HUGE endorsement.
This Chocolate Crunch Layer Cake was a massive hit at Elijah's birthday party with both the kids and the adults. If you're looking to impress with minimal effort, this is the cake for you. For a fruitier, lighter option, check out my Lemon Blueberry Layer Cake!
It's lunch time, so I'm off TO THE FRIDGE. I think there's one piece left.
Have a great rest of your week, friends!
