This cake right here...is probably thee most delicious cake I have ever eaten! Give it a try and let me know what you think. Pop over to Instagram to see more or to have a chat :).
Have I mentioned that I've been in a serious cake mood lately? Probably. I've become slightly obsessed with baking cakes. I am just having so much fun experimenting with different recipes and most of all with all the different kinds of decorating techniques. I've done an Ombre Cake, which personally I think turned out pretty darn good (okay, that's probably because ombre cakes are actually a lot easier to make than they look). I've done a sort of Naked Cake, which was pretty darn delicious and looked so majestic and festive during the holiday season. And now, ladies and gentleman we have thee most delicious Dark Chocolate Sprinkle Cake. This cake is everything, it is moist and rich and oh so beautiful. The part I loved the most about it was assembling it and adding all the sprinkles (serious sprinkle obsession over here). It truly is a fun cake to bake and make.
This Dark Chocolate Sprinkle Cake is pretty much a tribute to the amazing Rosie from Sweetapolita. Her cakes are so amazing and on top of it all she is also a fellow sprinkle lover ;). I have spent hours and hours staring at all her beautiful creations on her blog and Instagram page and have made many of her absoloutely delicious creations. So todays cake is a bit of a mixture. It is my cake, with her delicious Dark Fudge Frosting, her amazing inspiration of sprinkles and my homemade sprinkles. Yes, it is pretty much the perfect combo.
Other than the cake looking absoloutely beautiful it tastes heavenly. I love balance of the dark chocolate cake with the fudgy frosting. The cake itself isn't incredibly sweet, but add a little of that simply heavenly smooth frosting, throw on some colourful sprinkles and you have the most perfect cake. I could totally have a slice right now... (yes it's already all finished).
