Chocolate Blossom Dream

I was asked to make a really special chocolate cake for my grandma's church ladies group meet. It was for their monthly birthday celebration, and this July was extra special because it was my grandma's birth month.

I came up with this for them: four soft layers of chocolate cake sandwiched between chocolate buttercream, and then glazed with a layer of bittersweet chocolate ganache. I thought that the cake looked fantastic as is, and did a minimal amount of decorating on the top with buttercream lettering and fondant blossoms.

I love the contrast of the pale blossoms on the dark chocolate.
