Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake

It doesn't get any better than chocolate and peanut butter in my book. Specifically, in cake form. This four layer beauty sat center stage at my sister's bachelorette party last weekend. She's probably the only person in this world who can appreciate the delicious combo even more than me, and although I know she'd usually prefer ice cream, there weren't any arguments when it came time for dessert.

This cake is made up of four layers of dark chocolate cake sandwiched between a creamy peanut butter frosting. It is then glazed with a bitter chocolate ganache, spilling dreamily down the sides and topped with chopped peanut butter cups to seal the deal. Sinful doesn't even begin to describe it.

With this cake I particularly love the way the the rich frosting is offset by the bitterness of the chocolate ganache. The chopped peanut butter cups add good texture as a garnish as well.

You'll need a tall glass of milk to wash down this one. We at the bachelorette party also found that wine works just as well ;-) For more bachelorette party cake ideas, check out another one here.
