Naked Chocolate Cake

I've been wanting to make a "naked cake" for quite a while.  I finally purchased a cake ring and cake bands so that I could do it the way I wanted.  I know you could build it without any special equipment, but I wanted a 6" inch cake.

The layers include chocolate cake, chocolate and coffee buttercream frostings, and chocolate candies. It was surprisingly easy to build.  I baked one chocolate 9" cake round, and, after a short time in the freezer, I cut it with a 6" cake ring.  I split those two rings in to two rounds, and I used the scraps to create the middle cake layer.  This was not my creativity at work, I adapted the Milk Bar method I had read about.

The cake was for a friend's birthday.  So, after it was assembled I had to wait for the guest of honor to dive in.  The waiting was the hardest part.  I'll definitely be making more of these cakes in the future.  I like the different look, and I enjoy the process very much.

Happy Friday!
