Let there be cake.
Rich chocolatey cake. Filled with mint buttercream. Topped with rich, thick ganache.

A friend and I just bought tickets to see Jim Gaffigan in a few weeks, and whenever I make a big, fat cake I can't help but be reminded of his routine on how cake is the ultimate symbol of gluttony.

None of that crap here -- come over, grab a fork, and let's dig in.
