We are continuing birthday celebrations here at The Love Nerds with a fabulous Mocha Cake with Hazelnut Buttercream Frosting from Dizzy, Busy and Hungry. A special birthday cake idea for a special someone in your life!
My family loves traditional, plain birthday cakes. We are talking boxed yellow cake with a can of chocolate frosting. I am not sure why, but that was just the norm. Me? Not so much. I would usually ask for a pie or a cheesecake for my birthday growing up because I just don’t like plain cakes. Most people find me very strange because I will always turn down a plain vanilla or chocolate cupcake with canned icing. Always.
I definitely wouldn’t turn down this cake though! Kristin at Dizzy, Busy and Hungry shared a Mocha Cake with Hazelnut Buttercream Frosting. Doesn’t that sound fabulous?! Not only is it chocolate, but it also has coffee and Nutella! I don’t think it is possible for this cake to sound any better.
So why serve a plain birthday cake – from a box – when you can serve something as decadent as this? Heck, I might have to whip this up for myself in a couple weeks on my own birthday!
