Holiday Baking #1: Chocolate Cake with Creamy White Frosting

It's baking time!!!! I have been on the bread frenzy..the whole year I think...for for this Yuletide season...let me bake a cake =)

The last full blown cake that I have made was ages ago....so here we go....

creamed the butter with sugar and eggs...

cocoa incorporated
panning the batter
baking my first cake layer in the Kitchen aid oven...

lovely rich-dark colored chocolatey ckaes =)
I cooled them and prepared my Creamy White Frosting. I cose a white frosting because I felt like I want a white christmas cake =) hhehe


here I placed the frosting on the first cake layer

making an oreo cookie sandwich here


frosting the whole thing all over



...but I really don't fancy white looking cakes..so I decided to dustthe whole thing with cocoa powder and put shaved bitter-sweet chocolate on the sides and some more on top =)




TADA!!!! My Christmas Chocolate cake
hmmm any suggestions for a name?
This one went out as a gift =) Christmas baking is soooo delightful and fulfilling.
