Reese Peanut Butter Cup Cake

Reeses Peanut Butter Cups...Cake

Whoever came up with the idea of combining chocolate and peanut butter is brilliant.  While I love the flavours in a peanut butter cup, I wasn't so sure how the flavours would compliment each other in a cake...I decided to go with a light peanut butter mousse rather than a butter cream, and I think it was a good choice!   These are two roughly 6" cakes, filled with peanut butter mousse and covered in chocolate ganache...which I painstaking smoothed for longer than I care to remember!  The 'wrapper', of course, is fondant...

Wrapped Chocolate Cake

Drizzled Chocolate Wrap...

A new idea made for a friend's birthday!   I've designed cakes wrapped in chocolate previously as you can see in previous blog entries...However, this time I thought I'd try doing more of a lattice/drizzle than a solid piece. This is a chocolate cake with oreo cookie & cream filling, smothered in chocolate ganache.  Topped with white and dark chocolate shavings and gently wrapped in white and dark chocolate lattice!
