I was having a bad week. I knew that, on the weekend, I was going to want something to totally indulge in. Enter the easiest, most delicious chocolate cake I’ve ever eaten that wasn’t from a box.
I knew I wanted to make something chocolatey, I knew I wanted it to be super easy, and I also knew I wanted it to be able to hold up a few days til I was able to devour it. I saw this recipe come through on Pinterest and I made it that night!
You’ll notice I had a different color frosting in between than on top and on the sides; I had some frosting left over from making the Hostess Cake Pops and used the last half a can in between the layers. These are the best kind of leftovers!
I’m no cake decorator, but after a rough day, all I wanted to do was fall into some serious OCD and spend an hour decorating this cake. It was glorious. Honestly, the candy chips didn’t taste all that good and I ended up picking them off as I ate the cake later – but they were so much fun to put on!
After taking the single slice picture, I realized that my newly decorated cake resembled the favorite game in our house – Ms Pacman!
The coffee flavor really brings out the chocolate in the cake (like it needed help, ha!). The buttermilk takes it into the seriously moist category of cake. No final tips for this one – the recipe is incredibly straightforward and easy to whip up the next time you have a cake emergency!
