For my hubby's birthdays past, I have baked his favorite German chocolate cake: ooey, gooey & coconuty. But, this year, he requested something new, something even MORE decadent. The birthday cake inspiration this year was a classic Reese's peanut butter cup. The goal was a chocolate cake with peanut butter filling and a chocolate ganache exterior. Two days post peanut butter cake, it is but a memory and a dimple of cellulite on my thighs. But, oh, oh, oh, was it mighty tasty!
