Nothing really specialy about this cake, just posting this to show the Special Dark Chocolate Butter Cream Icing I was finally able to make using Hershey's new dutch processed cocoa.  I made this for a close friend's 43rd birthday.  We both LOVE dark chocolate!!  I really like the color of this frosting, so glad I was finally able to find the cocoa!!

This was a cake made for a lady who makes primitive quilts. She works at the Gooseberry Patch - I didn't realize how well it matched one of their books until my daughter went and got it and set it by the cake! 9X13 Chocolate cake w/ buttercream - different tips for different areas - added some texture.

Cake I made for my husband to take to work, Devil's food cake with chocolate frosting.  The roses on top are light and dark chocolate (the Wilton book does it in pink).  I also used a serrated scraper for the sides and piped dots for the border on the bottom.

This cake was colored after the dark olive green fabric used in the wedding decor.  I tried to choose a picture that would show as much as the color scheme as possible.  Opinions?  It wasn't my favorite cake because of the dark color - but I did enjoy doing something other than "white"!  You can view some of my other cake creations at  Thanks for looking!

My mother LOVES ice cream, so I thought this would be a fun cake for her.  Yellow butter cake with BC (crumb coat and whipped cream), fondant (Wilton and dark chocolate Satin Ice), melted Wilton dark chocolate (hot fudge), Butterscotch sauce mixed with melted white chocolate (butterscotch sauce), and candied cherries.  Oval pan for boat, mini balls for scoops.

I made this simple cake for my "retirement" , actually it was my going away party that my co-workers are throwing me. I just wanted to make something to say "thank you". It's confetti cake, with whipped dark chocolate ganache filling, dark chocolate buttercream, and I used the VIVA technique.

This is one of two birthday cakes I made for friends last weekend. This is a dark chocolate almond cake torted into four 8-inch layers filled with dark chocolate caramel buttercream and caramel. Crumb-coated with caramel and then frosted with dark chocolate caramel buttercream. I decorated it with tootsie roll roses, purple-tinted vanilla buttercream, double-chocolate pirouline cookies, and purple ribbons.

They are vanilla and chocolate. The lining has a leaf pattern that matches the leaves on top. I made the leaves out of royal icing. I made around 200 leaves, it took a while, lol.

My husband wanted me to try making him a cake the flavor as the orange candy that is dipped in chocolate. We usually get them during Christmas time.  They also come in a ball.  Believe it or not it tasted just like the candy.  Orange cake with Dark chocolate icing.

I made this cake for my husband's 41st birthday. It is a homemade 2-layer dark chocolate fudge cake torted into four layers filled with dark chocolate fudge mousse. The frosting is semisweet chocolate ganache and 41 hand-dipped raspberries. I topped the raspberries off with leftover ganache for some extra chocolatey goodness. It was delicious.

This was my first time making and using ganache to coat a cake.  Turned out pretty good!  Chocolate fudge cake filled with whipped chocolate ganache.  Coated with dark chocolate ganache and topped with whipped ganache rosettes, white chocolate, and milk chocolate.  White chocolate filigree.  Yep, that's 5 different types of chocolate!  I'm sending it to work tomorrow with DH so I won't be tempted ;)

This is my 3rd attempt at a cake.  I made a dark chocolate cake and used the buttercream dream recipe I found on this site.  The beads I made earlier this week and tossed them on there for the fun of it.  I was trying to see if I could do swirls.  I think my frosting was too melty so it was tough but I look forward to my next try which will be soon!!
Thank you for looking everyone.

Bday cake for my twin sister ("the evil twin")! I wanted to use her fave colors - black & burgundy and make it gothy for her. The bottom 9" is lemon blueberry cake. It is filled with a mixture of bc & lemon curd and iced in bc. The top cake is choc choc chip pound cake with alternating layers of choc and cookies & cream filling and iced in choc bc. The monkey is MMF and so is her name. The flames are also MMF that I colored and then airbrushed. The studs are edible silver dragees.

All decorations - palette, paintbrush, picture - are made out of either white chocolate or dark chocolate.  I used uncooked thick spagetti to mold chocolate around for paintbrush to get it nice and straight.

Hi sugar friends!
Wasn't sure if I could match her swatch, especially since I had to match sugar ribbon and dust on the gumpaste hydrangea.  But, thank goodness it all pulled together great!  Thanks for peeking!
