  • Summary

    This recipe features three-layer devil's food cake, and a super rich chocolate frosting courtesy of crafts and editorial director Hannah Milman's mother. It's the best birthday cake a chocolate lover could have. The frosting is made with heavy cream, grocery-store chocolate morsels (be sure to forgo fancy ones - the recipe won't work as well), and corn syrup. It requires constant stirring for about thirty minutes, but the result is such chocolaty goodness, you'll know every swipe of the spoon was worth it.

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter, softened, plus more for pans
    • 3/4 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder, plus more for pans
    • 1/2 cup boiling water
    • 3 cups sifted cake flour (not self-rising)
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
