Kit Kat Kake: Happy Birthday to Heather!

This is the Kit Kat Kake that me and my friend Sarah made, for Heather.

Inside it's filled with chocolate buttercream and crushed Kit Kats:

Me and Sarah had a blast making this cake. Things really do come out better when from the heart. The cake is chocolate cake, filled with chocolate buttercream and crushed Kit Kats, topped with chocolate fudge icing and with Kit Kats "glued" to edges with more buttercream.

The cake was one of the best cakes I've ever had. My only regret is I only got a small piece because there were a lot of kids. (brought it to a youth get-together at my church) but the most important thing is Heather absolutely loved it.

She's so adorable! <3

The buttercream was SOO yummy in the middle!! And the cake was so fudgy! I always thought I didn't like chocolate cake but I've changed my mind. It's only the boxed cake mix that I don't like.(I love yellow and white box mixes)

Edit:
What do you do with leftover buttercream? Spread it on an Oreo, of course!

Lovely cake! Happy Birthday to your friend!

I like to spread leftover icing (even ganache, if I have it) on graham crackers, which is something I usually have in the pantry.

Looks beautiful! What a fun idea, now I want to make cake with candy all over it! And while I have spread frosting on crackers before, the idea to put it on an Oreo amazingly never occurred to me, I'll have to give it a try.
BTW, I found your blog through the Foodie Blogroll. It's a pretty fun blog!
