Peanut Butter Addiction Cake

Today’s featured cake is all about candy.  Literally!  It is covered in candy and is most definitely eye candy for you.  I must warn you though.  If you love peanut butter and chocolate, the cravings produced by this cake might just take over…. you may find yourself rummaging for change and heading to the snack machine!  Between the dark chocolate cake, chocolate ganache, and an entire case of peanut butter cups, this cake is a Reese’s lover’s heaven!  Feast your eyes on this indulgent Peanut Butter Addiction Cake, created by Jennifer White at Cup A Dee Cakes in Georgia.
Peanut Butter Cup Cake
A few thoughts from Jennifer about this cake:

“The bride and groom asked for a very plain cake with lots of peanut butter cups. The cake itself was two tiers of a 3 layer dark chocolate cake with a layer of ganache, a layer of peanut butter buttercream and finished with chocolate buttercream.”

Peanut Butter Cup Cake

A few more thoughts from Jennifer about the design:

“For the peanut butter cup “decorations” we used a case of large, two bags of medium sized and two bags of mini’s. There were several imperfect candies that never made it to the cake! We started with a pattern, which you can see if you look hard, but ended up just using every space available to squeeze in more peanut butter cups.”

Oh my goodness, that looks delicious!  Somehow my whole wheat toast topped with organic nut butter did not do it for me for this morning… I want a piece of this cake!!  A very special thank you to Jennifer for sharing her outrageous Peanut Butter Addiction Cake with us.

    I’m not going to lie. I need to go back to the basics before I even try to stack. I have lost my touch!
