Chocolate Truffle cake is the birthday cake which I made for my husband's birthday. We all like chocolate a lot and so I planned to make this. This cake was pending from so long and because of  my busy schedule I couldn't try it out. Birthdays are best to try new cakes and so here it is today in my blog for all my dear readers.

A chocolate layer cake is a dense and moist cake with a silky whipped ganache filling. this cake is to die for. Totally melts in your mouth. This chocolate cake is perfect for the chocolate lover in your life. It is seriously so good, nicely balanced and not super sweet. this cake is ultra chocolaty. Head on over to bake this cake.
