With it being National Chocolate Cake Day, we couldn’t help but spend some time drooling over a few of our favourite chocolate cake recipes and decorating ideas. There aren’t many things out there that are more indulgent than a slice of rich chocolate cake and we hope you can all treat yourself to a slice at some point today!
We can’t get enough of this delicious looking combination of mint and chocolate from Cake Merchant, and wish we could cut a slice of the cake right now! Pair chocolate sponge layers with frosting and mint chocolate chips to add that lovely crunch to your cake. P.S make sure to drizzle lots of chocolate on top for that amazing dripping effect!
Naked cakes couldn’t be more on trend right now, and what better way to incorporate this trend into your own baking than with a layered chocolate sponge cake! This chocolate covered strawberry layer cake from Annie’s Eats instantly made our mouths water and would be the perfect cake to make for any celebrations or gatherings you may be planning. What’s even better is the fact that the chocolate cake is decorated with strawberries which makes it healthy.. wouldn’t you agree?
Salted caramel is everywhere right now and we’re very glad to see it drizzled over this delicious looking chocolate fudge cake with buttercream layers from Domestic Gothess. Chocolate fudge cake is an indulgence that we can never say no to, and it’s especially hard to ignore when it looks this good! You have the option to make your own salted caramel or make life a bit easier and use ready-made sauce from the supermarket.
We couldn’t help but include another chocolate fudge cake in our favourites as it just looks so good! This fudge cake from Supergolden Bakes is a little bit different as it also includes layers of whipped nutella.. yum!
