OOOMMMG. i love the combo of chocolate and peanut butter… it always reminds me of family guy, too. haha. my favorite cousin patrick graduated from high school on thursday!! i really really really wanted to make him a seriously great cake because he deserves it. voila- three layers of sour cream chocolate cake with peanut butter cream cheese frosting and a chocolate glaze. i got the amazing recipe from smitten kitchen. the only thing i changed was the chocolate glaze. i didn’t have corn syrup so i omitted it completely, eyeballed the ingredients… added a lot more peanut butter, and only used a few tablespoons of heavy cream instead of half & half. when i added the cream, the chocolate totally seized up on me! woops! i should’ve microwaved the cream so it wasn’t so cold when it was added… i just threw it back onto the double broiler.

oh! and i added chopped reeses cups to the side of the cake. i didn’t want to overwhelm my family, so i only put a little bit on there.

this is the first time i’ve ever really made a layered cake!!! i’m so happy how it turned out. i had about 20 minutes to put it together because i was running late to dinner & i decided to watch daniel tosh’s new tv show instead of putting in effort… haha. my family is more about taste than presentation anyway.

muahaha… the results were FANTASTIC. wendy already asked for it for her birthday cake. 🙂
