I have a confession to make………cake decorating kind of scares me.  I’m not sure why, but it does.  For years I always just made cake using a 9×13 pan, frosted the top with a knife and called it a day.

Then not long after I started blogging, I began reading blogs that inspired me to try new things. So many share the most mouth watering, hip widening confections.  Many believe cakes should be beautiful from the inside out.  They generously share HOW to make and decorate cakes on their blogs.

The cake I made today is a chocolate lovers dream cake!  I first spotted the cake over at Brown Eyed Baker in six layers of glory!  Michelle slightly adapted the cake recipe from Rosie at Sweetapolita.

If you hang around here much, you know how much I LOVE to doctor the Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate Fudge cake mix just a little.  It’s my very favorite for a rich, moist delicious chocolate cake.
