The 24-layer Chocolate Cake

Deciding on what a "luscious and elegant" chocolate cake should be for a recent request was easy as pie :)  I immediately thought of only one cake.  The elegant 24-layer Chocolate Cake from The Strip House restaurant is the most delicious chocolate cake I've tasted.

The layers are alternating chocolate cake and chocolate filling, coated with a semi-sweet chocolate ganache.  Very luscious, indeed!!  Usually after a steak meal I would pass on dessert, which would have been regretful in this case.  Thankfully my sweet tooth insisted on it; chocolate cake heaven!

My mini version was made with a dark chocolate ganache and filling.  I also made a twin, which is destined for a friend in Europe, thanks, P :))))

Golden currants top the cake and slice.  The beautiful Santos rosewood table was turned by Thomas Saunders.  Silver cake server by Don Henry.

My favorite holiday season has commenced :)  Wishing you joyous days...
