So the other day I realised that it was my ‘blogiversary’ and I thought to myself, “You know what this calls for? A double layer white chocolate mud cake with blackberry buttercream frosting.” Only it was more like “Mud cake!” because I was much too excited to get that entire sentence out.
As you can see, this cake is not a lie. Although, for all you know, to the left is just a plate of delicious white chocolate frosting that just so happens to look like cake… but there is cake underneath it all, I promise. Two layers, even!
I was so eager / nervous to dish the cake out to my lovely new colleagues that I forgot to take a picture of the beautiful red inside. Whoops! But that just means I get to make another one tomorrow, right?
This cake would have to be, by far, my best creation yet. A lot of what I have baked so far has been rather simple and I wanted to start branching out into recipes that were more complex and more involved. When I read the below recipe, I knew right away that this was a cake I just had to make. I had specifically been looking for a recipe that called for more than just one layer, and what better flavour than caramel?
