I was 100% guilted into making this cake. That is the complete truth. You see, I have this friend who is a major chocoholic, probably even more so than I am. I posted an oatmeal cake a few weeks ago and he told me it was criminal to post any desserts that were non-chocolate. After that, he commented on an Instagram post of a piece of chocolate cake reminding me and his wife “what chocolate looks like.” So naturally I was feeling guilty and I made this cake. I could say it doesn’t take much to”guilt” me into something, but I think it’s really just more that I love making things for people. I’m always finding reasons for why this person needs cookies or why I’d better make this family some bread, etc. I think I get it from my grandma. She was always doing things for others.
This cake pretty fabulous! Layers of moist chocolate cake and amazing chocolate mousse, topped off with the frosting from my mississippi mud cake. . . oh it’s definitely a chocolate lover’s dream and could easily put anyone into a chocolate coma. It’s definitely rich, so a little piece goes a long way.Print
