Chocolate Birthday Cake

John’s birthday is on the winter solstice, so we always have birthday cake during the holiday season. This year I just got a bit creative with a box mix:

Dark chocolate cake with dark chocolate icing (chocolate is a hard ‘color’ to get right in photos!). I trimmed the rounded top off the bottom layer, cubed it, and then sprinkled it over the finished frosted cake. Then I took a Special Dark bar and shaved the dark chocolate over the entire cake, as well as the cake plate. (Good thing John likes chocolate – LOL!)
