Happy Birthday Alex!


It's Sweet to Share!

Alex is a comrade of Gabriel’s from the Art Institute and a few days ago his girlfriend contacted us about helping throw him a surprise birthday party! Though I do have some experience throwing Gabriel a whopping cool 30th surprise birthday party last year, I was far more concerned with who was making the cake!

She was going to purchase one from Costco… of course I intervened.

Cake: Comatose (Deep Chocolate Chocolate Chip)
Filling: Chocolate Sweet Sauce
Frosting: Chocolate Buttercream

All this chocolate is sure to make you comatose, as the name indicates, but you’ll never have better dreams than after falling prey to this beauty.

2 cups sugar
2 sticks butter
½ cup oil
Mix until elements are of the same consistency

Add 4 egg yolks, one at a time, beating after each addition and 1 teaspoon vanilla

Melt 4oz. semi sweet chocolate in 1 cup water, mix to smooth

1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
Stir dry ingredients into batter
Add 1 cup buttermilk, whisk to smooth
Stir in remaining 1 cup flour with 1 cup mini semi sweet chocolate chips

Whisk 4 egg whites to firm peaks and fold into batter

Pour batter evenly into two greased and lined 9″ round cake pans
Bake at 350°F for 20-25 minutes, until cake springs back to the touch
Run knife along edge of pan, and cool on wire rack

Slice each cake round in half
Spread an even layer of Fahrenheit 350° Chocolate Sweet Sauce between each layer, and between two cake rounds
Reserve a little sauce to line perimeter of cake prior to frosting

3 cups powdered sugar
3 cups cocoa powder

6 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons Crisco
2 teaspoons vanilla
+/- ¼ cup milk for consistency
Layer outside and top of cake with frosting and decorate as desired

  1. Comatose? I’d be bouncing off the walls after a slice of this heavenly cake! It’s so beautifully decorated and so incredibly rich and scrumptious-looking. I want this! I’m sure Alex will be thanking his lucky stars that he got this instead of a Costco cake (not that there’s anything wrong with that!) 8-D
