Chocolate and Peanut Butter Drip Cake


Cocoa Fudge Cake (The recipe below will make two 81/2 inch pans, so I doubled it for a four-tier cake)
1⅔ cups all-purpose flour or 2 cups cake flour
1½ cups white sugar
⅔ cups cocoa
½ cups vegetable oil
1½ cups buttermilk (OR 2 Tbsp vinegar in 1½ cups milk)
1½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs

Peanut Butter Buttercream (The recipe below will only be enough to cover a 2-layer cake, so I doubled it for a four-tier cake)
1 cup unsalted butter
3-4 cups sifted powdered sugar
¼ tsp salt
1 tbsp vanilla extract
3-4 Tbsp milk or heavy cream (I always use cream with this recipe!)
1 cup smooth peanut butter

Chocolate Ganache (As long as your cake is 8-10″ round, this should be all you need no matter the height!)
½ cup melted semi-sweet chocolate
½ cup cream

Optional Toppings: Mini Reeses’ Pieces, Mini Reeses’ Peanut Butter Cups, and Reese’s Peanut Butter cups, crushed.
