I was bored yesterday and decided to make a 6 inch cake. A decadent 6 inch cake. If I haven’t said so before…I will say it again.. this is the best chocolate cake ever. Yes.. ever.

So, you have the recipe. Now I urge you to try it. If you like a cake filled with chocolate flavor then this is it. The recipe has sour cream.. duh… and unsweetened chocolate.. its great.

I wanted more chocolate.. so I made a great Chocolate Buttercream from Food.com. This is my go to Chocolate Buttercream recipe.. and I have mentioned that before to. But just incase you all didn’t get it the first time I thought I would mention it again.

Still.. that wasn’t chocolate enough. So hey, a ganache. Why not? I was bored.. .I had semi-sweet chocolate chips laying around doing nothing and being bored like me. So I put them to work and made my go to ganache recipe. This time I decided to whip it. Whip it real good… while cold. Then I added some caramel topping that I had in the fridge. Yes, that looked bored too so I invited it to the party. And boy.. that was the best guest as it complimented the chocolate so very well. I even decided to give it a bonus by drizzling it on top of the cake… which of course I had poured some un-whipped ganache that was leftover. Why waste?

Anyway, the result was worth the effort.  Can’t you tell?
