Chocolate birthday cake

Tomorrow we have two birthdays at the office, so i am making my delicious chocolate cake…

Everyone loves this cake, it’s so chocolaty and moist..

I been making this chocolate cake since I was in high school, every time I baked it my brothers and sisters went crazy over it!

This time I topped the cake with homemade cranberry jam and buttercream frosting, two layers of cranberry jam and two layers of chocolate buttercream frosting…

First I did the crumb coat and I let it set in the fridge for half hour for the frosting to set a little, after half an hour I did a second coating to finished it off…

This is a homemade cake so I was not really worried about mastering the decorating part, the only concern I had is how would it taste… so a simple swirly wiggly touches with the offset spatula and I was done!

I was creative with the leftover crumbs, I lined a small cake pan with parchment paper for easy left, folded the sides and held them with a metal office clips…

Pressed the leftover crumbs in to the pan and made it in to a small cake, also I had a leftover frosting and I always have sprinkles in my pantry…

Frosting a little sprinkles and a mini cake was born for the little ones in my life to enjoy, well at least one of them was present at that moment!
