Double chocolate birthday cake is where it’s at!
With super moist and fluffy cake layers and chocolate buttercream inside and out!
Chocolate cake is a quick one bowl mix and the buttercream is made without shortening!
A small addition of ganache to my famous American Style buttercream recipe makes instant no fuss chocolate buttercream!
No birthday cake is complete without loads of sprinkles
If you don’t have a reliable source for vegan sprinkles you can always make your own!

FOR THIS CAKE I AM USING:
- This is a building on recipes project so you will have to prepare your cake recipe and the buttercream and the ganache according to the instructions for those recipe posts
- If you are making homemade sprinkles be sure to start that project at least 1 full day ahead of time
- The cakes pictured are baked in 3-7" cake pans
- Take out about 1 cup of the buttercream to color for the confetti streamers and then the chocolate buttercream is made by adding 1 cup of cooled ganache to the remaining buttercream
Chocolate birthday cake can be kept at room temperature for several days in a cool climate. For longer storage & to avoid the risk of flopping cakes, refrigerate for up to 1 week
