Dark chocolate peppermint cake

This is a cake to delight your tastebuds for the holidays! It's like Chic-Fil-A's peppermint chocolate chip milkshake in cake form.

I have to go into extreme detail, since, sadly, you can't taste a picture! The cake is extremely tender because it is made with buttermilk and has lots of cocoa for a deep chocolate flavor. It is covered with a layer of smooth chocolate ganache flavored with a splash of peppermint schnapps. And the icing...oh, the icing...the cake is filled and frosted with a light, creamy, Swiss meringue buttercream...not too sweet, and flavored with finely ground peppermint sticks.

Super Mario chess cake

Vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream, fondant chess board. Chess pieces are part of the Mario chess game and belong to the customer.

This cake did NOT like being moved! If there's ever another occasion for a chess board cake, I will put a square of fondant under the individual squares of the chess board so they don't move around with the buttercream.
