from this recipe.
seriously, peoples, this cake is DANGEROUSLY GOOD. like, buy a whole new wardrobe three sizes larger in preparation kind of good.
here’s what i did:
i baked two of the three layers the night before, because i only have two cake pans, it was late and i was tired. i poured the remaining batter into a small container and refrigerated it until the next morning. it baked up just fine, how about that? i may start making cake batters a couple days before just for kicks and giggles from now on. just kidding. sort of.
instead of semisweet chocolate, i used bittersweet for the glaze topping. i also **may** have overheated the glaze a little bit much because i was still in my pajamas fifteen minutes before guests were to arrive and my bed wasn’t made either and i still had some dishes to do and salad to make and yes i was trying to do all those things at once which is why i **may** have neglected the chocolate over the double boiler and why it thickened up **quite** a bit. soooo, it turned into ganache. which was still really good.
and i did get dressed in time, in case you were wondering. i don’t **think** my clothes were on backwards or inside out.
also, i just chopped up some peanuts and sprinkled them over top for the final touch.
