It's a Chocolate/Peanut Butter Overload!So Imac's 28th Birthday is today (yes I'm aware I am dating someone 5 months younger than me, does that make me a cougar? I think i'm more like a feral cat). Anyways, since we all know I have a baking problem, and Imac's family lives in various parts of the US, I volunteered to make his birthday cake. Okay not so much volunteered as much as I demanded to make the cake, but same dif right?
I set out to make a Kit Kat Barrel cake. I'm pretty sure I first heard of this cake when my sexy Irish Nip Cliquer Harley made it on her blog.
So Step 1: Assemble ingredients
I made a Peanut Butter/Cream Cheese filling:
6 oz Cream Cheese
1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
2 tbsp Milk
4 tbsp sugar
Step 4: Level bottom cake, Layer on filling, Sandwich with top level
Step 5: Make Frosting and Apply to cake
I made a chocolate cool whip frosting
1 5oz Box Jello Instant Chocolate Pudding
1 cup milk (mix the two and then add)
1 8oz container of Cool Whip
Step 6: Add Kit Kats, Bow and top with Reece's Peices (or M&Ms')
I used 9in cake pans and it took 10 1/2 regular sized packs of Kit Kats to go all the way around.
Step 7: Enjoy!
