Chocolate Celebration Cake

My sister-in-law first made this cake and sent down a slice and let me tell you I had to have the recipe for it!! Chocolate dipped strawberries are one of my favorite things, so a cake with them piled on top of sounded perfect to me!!
Original recipe is from Taste Of Home-I love their recipes and use them often.
Love, love, love these;)

I can't for the life of me get my frosting to go on smooth-so I used a butter knife to make this design on the sides.
This cake is basically just a boxed mix thats been "enhanced" with extra ingredients added
for moistness.
This recipe makes a lot of frosting and next time I won't make the full amount of ganache either but I will definitely be making it again!
Full recipe available in the printable

The top has a ganache poured over and dripping down the sides a little.

Thats a ton of frosting!!
This would make an excellent Valentine's Day cake:)

Enjoy!!
