Black & White Striped Cake

I did it! I finally got some time to make and decorate a cake that has been on my To-Do list for the longest time. With two little ones running my schedule full-time, my creative baking has been few and far between. So this past week I blocked out bits of time to finally get it done.

Inspired by these super cute leggings on Etsy, I decided to make a cake based on the design. I baked a Chocolate Butter cake and filled/crumb coated it with Nutella Buttercream. I then covered it in Dark Chocolate ganache and decorated it with modeling chocolate using the techniques I learned in the Craftsy Clean & Simple Cake Design class taught by Jessica Harris of Jessicakes.

I am absolutely over the moon happy with how well the cake turned out! The seams still need a little work but this cake has me grinning from ear to ear. 🙂
