A Chocolate Chocolate 40th Birthday Cake. Yes, it’s double chocolate 😉 I couldn’t think of a more creative name for this cake, so that one will have to do. It’s Day 8 of the Write 31 Days challenge and this post will be pretty short & sweet.
I did this cake way back in 2014 (I think) and if I remember correctly, I didn’t have a lot of notice before doing it. I have a dear friend who is a restaurant owner and caterer and she faithfully refers her clients to me for wedding & event cakes.
She’s been so good to me (and good for my business) that I always try to accommodate her when I can. So when she asked for this cake – an all chocolate – all buttercream cake… I immediately agreed to do it!
She didn’t ask for any specifics on the design or details so I had free reign to do it as I wanted. I’ve always admired all the different textures and looks for multi-tiered buttercream cakes so I picked three different textures and ran with it.
I even made the topper out of melted chocolate… I just piped out the “40” on wax paper and attached lollipop sticks… easy-peasy!

And I think that’s all I can tell you about this cake. If you have any other questions that I didn’t address, please leave me a comment and I’ll do my best to answer!
