Black and White Cake

Black & White Cake

I have been very lazy in writing lately 🙁 Lots of posts need to be written because I keep experimenting with new recipes. Baking is the only thing which liberates me!! And the net is full of inspiration. My pinterest feed is overflowing with  drool-worthy bakes. This Black and White Cake was baked for my mom’s birthday in august. It was so  rich and sinful.  It comprised of a vanilla cake between two chocolate cakes sandwiched with a creamy buttery condensed milk frosting and topped with dark chocolate ganache.

A slice of this Black and White Cake is nothing less than heaven. A layer cake is beautiful and impressive to bake when you have guests coming over or for any special occasion at home.

Lot of elements are required for assembling this cake. You can bake the layers a day before. The glossy white buttery frosting and the dark chocolate ganache can also be prepared in advance. Feel free to use a boxed cake for the vanilla and chocolate cakes or try my favorite vanilla sponge cake recipe that I used in the “Pastel layer cake with white chocolate buttercream“.  I also have several tried and tested chocolate cake recipes up on the blog 🙂

Once the cakes are done, you can get going with the “Dark chocolate ganache“.

And now for my new favorite buttery creamy Condensed milk frosting 😀 Seriously, the star of this delicious cake tower is this silky smooth buttercream.
