This was a fun cake to make. I used Buddy Valastro's chocolate cake recipe as well as the chocolate frosting recipe from his Cake Boss recipe book. It was good to try something different. His outstanding cakes have inspired me to make fun looking cakes. Visiting his bakery in Hoboken, NY was one of my favorite memories! I was hoping to see him, but he wasn't there and I got a picture with his sweet sister instead.
