Naked Birthday

So I hesitate to say that this is called a bare naked cake because of the sort of searches that will lead people here...
Naked cakes are all the rage. Sometimes, there's frosting lightly smeared on the outside of the cake, scraped on, really. Cake is still visible underneath.  This particular style is called "bare naked" because there's no frosting outside; just between the layers.

Cake is cookies and cream. I'm not that happy with my old recipe so I've been trying new ones, tweaking others. This one was probably the best so far, just comes out a little darker than the previous options. Frosting is whipped chocolate buttercream, also a new feature. I am totally in love with this frosting!
