Layer Cake with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

Layer cakes make a fantastic celebration dessert. They not only look impressive but they’re delicious and can feed a large number of people. I made this three layer cake for a birthday dinner for 12 and there was still half a cake left over – which is not a bad thing! The batter for this cake […]
