Some Kinda Beautiful Special Occasion Chocolate Cake

I made this labor intensive Special-Occasion Chocolate Cake for several of my co-workers who celebrated birthdays one fall. It’s three layers of the most moist, delicious combination of toasted almonds, fudgy buttercream frosting and chocolate ganache you’ll ever taste. This recipe, courtesy of Taste of Home, is the epitome of Some Kinda Good.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get many pictures but as soon as I began cutting into the cake and describing it, the next thing I knew, my co-workers were video taping. HA! I was being silly, but they were successful in capturing my passion for all things chocolate and heavenly. They also got a great shot of the decadent layers. Thanks Mark and Ryan!

I started baking the cake at 7 p.m. and didn’t finish until after 10 p.m., but every second was worth it. By the way, the recipe is named Special Occasion for a reason…be sure to save it for an indulgent celebration.
