Chocoholic Birthday

I made this cake for a sweet young lady whose only request was that it be chocolate. I might have taken that to the extreme...


Inside, this is a dense, fudgey chocolate cake, filled with a healthy dollop of milk chocolate buttercream, frosted in the same buttercream and then coated twice with dark chocolate ganache. The curls are also dark chocolate. The initial is marshmallow fondant (not white chocolate, because white chocolate is an abomination). The next time I make this cake - because there will be a next time - I plan to alternate the two layers of ganache between dark and milk chocolate.

A tall glass of milk is highly recommended.
