The Best Cake I Make: Double Chocolate Layer Cake

I would like to share with you the best cake that I make… The recipe was shared with me by my lovely friend Joanna (visit her here) and is by Ina Garten.  You can find the recipe here.

Double Chocolate Layer Cake @ HappyWifey.netThere are a LOT of things I like about this cake:

  1. I have made this cake at LEAST four times, and it has been good every time.
  2. The buttermilk in the cake makes the actual cake AWESOME and it is the only from-scratch cake I have excelled at yet.  Who needs Pillsbury?
  3. The coffee that is in the icing and in the cake really gives it a deep mocha flavor!
  4. The icing is really easy to work with and I am getting better at icing it each time.
  5. EVERYONE loves this cake!

Double Chocolate Layer Cake @ HappyWifey.netThis lovely cake was made for my Dad’s 64th birthday earlier this month.  He loved it!  Sometimes it is so so lovely to make someone you love a from-scratch cake.

Check out my icing writing on the top!  I wish I could show you my last cake’s attempts… it is safe to say that I am getting better!  You’ll just have to take my word for it.
