Birthdays are, if nothing else, an excellent excuse to stuff yourself with an absurd amount of cake.
Of course this isn’t constricted to your own special day – though I implore people to eat a damn good amount of cake when that rolls around too! So when one of my best friend’s birthdays cropped up I took it as an excuse to do something a little bit naughty in the kitchen.
Naughty in the way only three rich, fudgy chocolate sponge layers jammed together by a truly ridiculous cream cheese and peanut butter frosting, then drenched in a intense peanut butter laced ganache, can be.
I mean… come on…
It is easily the sexiest thing I’ve had in my kitchen recently.
