Nothin Bundt Cakes - My version of the chocolate chocolate chip bundt

Happy Monday!
Did you have a wonderful Mother's Day?
I sure did.  I love being surrounded by my friends and family.  We also celebrated  four birthdays.

This is the birthday cake I made for my family members.  It's a Nothin Bundt Cakes copycat recipe. This year I decided to copy the signature cream cheese frosting on top of the ganache along with a flower.  I think it turned out great!

My husband was SO impressed with the way I made that white chocolate flower in the center...hahahahah.  When he found out that it was just a rose from my garden, he was stunned!  He seriously thought I had made it out of chocolate.  And here I thought he was impressed with my piping skills.

Oh, and the piping part is easy.  Use an extra large round tip - start from the sides of the cake and pipe towards the center.  Stagger each row all the way around.  Fill the center with any left over icing and add a pretty flower on top to complete the look.

I've written about this cake several times before. It's our very favorite chocolate cake.
