Canon and I worked on this one one rainy, nasty weekend. Didn't stand a chance once I brought it to work... but he still calls it "his cake."
For this cake, I started with a recipe out of Giada's Kitchen, but changed it up a bit to make it my own.
There are lots of steps, but none are that difficult. You end up with a creamy-crunchy filling made up of a macadamia nut brittle that is also echoed on the top as garnish. The cake part is dark chocolate - from a boxed cake mix. The topping is a sprinkling of homemade chocolate-orange-sugar! YUMMY!!!
