From Geezgo: Holiday Chocolate Mega Cakes

Double down on chocolate goodness with these cakes!

Layer in all that candy goodness with a spatula combo

Leftover chocolate might be a bit of an oxymoron, but sometimes around the holidays you just get so much of it! Whether it’s been brought over by guests, or shimmied its way down the chimney with Santa, this is the time of year for chocolate overload, and this week I’m upping the ante by elevating it to a next level sweet treat.

Starting with 12lbs of my Ultimate Chocolate Cake, I’m stacking these babies up with all of my fave fillings- swiss meringue chocolate buttercream, chocolate ganache, and sweet sweet caramel! Layered together with classic holiday chocolates these cakes are begging that you don’t have any healthy eating new year's resolutions!
