Everyone loves a Kit Kat bar, especially Bo. We saw a little Kit Kat Cake in the grocery store that he wanted, and I told him I could do WAY better than that. Here it is: super moist chocolate cake with a fudge filling and a smooth, delicious buttercream frosting. And lots (AND LOTS) of Kit Kat pieces!
Let me start off by saying this Kit Kat cake looks like there’s a lot more going on then there really is. Don’t be scared off by it! I actually only have a small handful of cake “pieces” that I use over and over again in different combinations to make different cakes. They’re the recipes I’ve made dozens of times, that never let me down.
This cake came about because I ran into a grocery store last-minute to grab a cake. They had these cute little Kit Kat cakes there and I thought, yep, that’ll do. Bo thought, yep, I’m gonna eat that entire thing myself. Problem was, it wasn’t for him, and we were dropping it off before heading out to dinner. No cake for you (Bo)!
Being the award-winning wife that I am (ok, so I haven’t TECHNICALLY won an award, but I’m certain Bo is working on one for me now), I took it upon myself to make one just for him the very next day. I mean come on, if that isn’t award worthy, I don’t know what is….
