We made three (8 inch) cake layers of our Classic Chocolate Cake from scratch (linked below) which stand approximately 5 inches tall.

Once cooled, we filled our layers with our favorite Peanut Butter Buttercream frosting, and frosted with a coat of dreamy chocolate buttercream which we combed with an Ateco cake comb for a ridged effect.

Peanut Butter Buttercream rosettes were piped with a Wilton 21 star tip over the top of the cake, and we added a chocolate buttercream shell border with a 2D star tip. Finally, we finished things off with a healthy helping of mini Reese's Cups. Heaven!

  1. Looks yummy!!! Funny that you posted this, I'm working on a Chocolate, PB and PB Cup cake right now for my son. Except mine will be covered in fondant and be topped with a hand grenade - LOL! I hope my cake is as explosively yummy as yours!!!

  2. @MsGF - We must be on the same wavelength with our cakes (minus the grenade-haha) ;0) --I'm sure that he will love it! -

  3. LOOKS to die for. This is a favorite flavor combination of many of my customers also. My favorite flavor as well. YUMMO :)
    Just did lots of cupcakes in this flavor last weekend.

  4. It's beautiful. My wife is a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup girl. She love those things.
    I was pondering on what her birthday cake would be this year .

    Thank you Be Be and Melissa


  5. Thanks Paula & Paula M!! :0) -- @Scott- You should definitely make this for your wife, she'll love it! :0)

  6. I love chocolate and peanut butter combined, and when it's in a cake, heaven! This flavor combo was one of the tiers in my niece's wedding cake. I got tons of compliments on it (as it wasn't just a plain boring chocolate cake).

    I recently found Oreo cookies filled with Reece's PB cups. I'm thinking those might be great mixed up with some buttercream for a filling.

  7. OMG the cake looks devineeeeeeeeeeeee! with the liquid measurements are they in grams or ml - I really want to try this here in Aussie land.

  8. While I made this cake and it was absolutely delicious, my layers fell after they came out of the oven and were not thick looking like yours> Did I do something wrong? Some of my family loved this cake and some didn't but the ones that did were having a fitting over how good it was. My son in law said, that was the best cake I ever made!! It was Pretty awesome but would have like my layers to been a little more thicker!!
