It was the hubby's birthday yesterday and I made him a peanut butter dream cake to celebrate another milestone (Yes dude, it's a MILESTONE!). He is a HUGE peanut butter fan and I don't think I've met anyone who loves peanut butter as much as him. I knew I had to make him a chocolate peanut butter cake for his special day and of course there was no objection when I ran the idea by him. Instead, he added to the idea. "Didn't I see someone top a cake with loads of Reese's and peanut butter cups the other day? Do that!" he said. The man knows what he wants and apparently, he spies on me. He was referring to this cake from Kristan.
Is this cake too much?: Absolutely YES! It's a dark chocolate cake with creamy peanut butter frosting and as you can see topped with a chocolate ganache glaze.
Would I ever want a birthday cake with this much peanut butter and chocolate?: Nah. This Strawberry Lavender Cake is more my birthday cake style.
But it was his day and as a chocoholic peanut butter lover, his dream did come true with this! So the next time you want to celebrate a peanut butter lover in your life, you HAVE to make them this chocolate peanut butter cake!
