Chocolate Gingerbread Layer Cake: Moist and chocolatey cake layers infused with gingerbread spice all topped with Chocolate Orange Swiss Meringue Buttercream.
This post is sponsored by my longstanding partner Rodelle. As always the opinions, bad grammar, and overuse of emoji’s are all mine.
The cocoa powder contains one of the highest levels of cocoa butter on the market which makes for a great baked good.
Everyone one knows (or at least those that read this blog) Rodelle vanilla products are awesome, now is the time to learn that their cocoa is too.
This year, as I did a few years ago, I wanted to make something chocolate gingerbread.
I actually made two recipes for Rodelle but I’m having this one be the “official” sponsored post.
Well, see I have had a long standing relationship with Rodelle that they pretty much let me make what I want.
They trust it will be good.
Which is nice and one of the reasons they are one of the few sponsored post a year.
That, and I love their products.
But if you read the blog you already know that ten times over.
The other recipe will be up in a few days and you will just have to wait to see.
Why this one for the official post then?
Because layer cakes are impressive.
Plus this one has Chocolate Orange Swiss Meringue Buttercream which takes way longer than American buttercream but is way, way better.
And it had happy little gingerbread men.
Which purposely don’t have faces.
I feel bad when I eat gingerbread men with faces.
Without faces, I don’t care as much. 😀
This cake is moist and chocolatey with a good hint of gingerbread spice.
All frosted in that yummy buttercream.
If you love making layer cakes, add this to the list of must makes.
Once again, I’m a proud ambassador of Rodelle and their amazing baking products. I would love if you would support Rodelle and the companies that support this blog.
