Rich dark chocolate, additional cherry liqueur, thick whipping cream, and powdered sugar make up the icing. This Birthday cake is gorgeous, more like a piece of art than a piece of cake, and the subtle bitterness of the dark chocolate shavings perfectly balances the sweetness of the frosting and the tanginess of the cherry filling.

Chocolate Drip Cake

The chocolate drip cake is a beautiful, elegant birthday cake that can be baked in less time and yet looks professional. Melted chocolate chips and heavy whipping cream are combined after the cakes are baked and iced, and the mixture is then squeezed around the edge of the cake to create a drip effect. After that, you may either use the remaining frosting to frost the cake’s top or leave it unfrosted.
