The Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Ganache, Kahlua Whipped Cream, and Oreo is the definition of indulgent baking! Welcome to a jazzed-up Mississippi Mud Cake! Don’t miss my 50 Best Cake Recipes if you want lots of cake ideas!
My friend Jocelyn has written a lovely book called Grandbaby Cakes and this cake is one of the masterpieces in it!
Sharing it with you today is pure joy for me as I consider Jocelyn to be like a sister. She is smart, sassy, hilarious, thoughtful, kind, and talented beyond words. If I were a bettin’ gal I would put money on FAME in Jocelyn’s future… big things I know! This amazingly creative cake is layers of decadently rich chocolate, alcohol-infused whipped cream, and the best ganache ever. I added some Oreos because I loved the extra texture they added to each glorious bite.
