The surprise favorite for me on this cake was the cacao nibs. For those of you who have not been exposed to these little delights, they’re pure, unprocessed chocolate aka they’re very crunchy and chocolatey (not sweet at all). They contrast with the buttercream nicely and prevent the cake from being cloying.

I’ve made this cake many times and filmed on two separate occasions. So you might notice that I bake a 6 inch cake but decorate an eight inch one. I often love to make a smaller cake make a batch of cupcakes with the extra batter. Just to be clear though the recipe makes 3 nice eight inch cake layers!
