World’s Best Triple Layer Chocolate Cake With Chocolate Ganache Frosting

I made this cake for a birthday party..She told me to make a chocolate cake and it should be really chocolaty..I am happy that I have the best chocolate cake recipe in the world...So I promised her..

This cake is so soft and has a rich chocolate taste to it. I frosted this cake with two types of frosting..I used a simple chocolate ganache to frost outside and cream cheese icing to frost inside, since I had some left over from this recipe..But you don’t have to do that..You can any of your favorite frosting..

So off you go to the step by step recipe with pictures..
