Chocolate Walnut Peanut Butter Cake

So I made Crystal her cake! My first attempt at making a chocolate cake was a total disaster, so I went ahead and got the help of Betty Crocker. I did not want to kill it for her, so I decided to practice on cake making from scratch later on when I have time. I decided to bake a Chocolate Walnut brownie mix, with my own little mix. Ha.

I greased two 8" pans and poured in the batter to both pans. Baked for about 30 mins.

For the peanut butter layer:

  • 3/4 Cup of creamy peanut butter

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter

  • 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract

  • 3/4 cup of powdered sugar

Beat peanut butter, butter, and vanilla in medium mixer bowl until its smooth and combined. Gradually add in powdered sugar, beat until its fluffy. Spread the mixture on top of one cake (when cake is cooled for about 30 mins, or else peanut butter layer WILL melt).

The decorations where random. I threw in things that came to mind. Including these chocolate cookie kisses that where laying around.

I got a chance to get a slice of the cake. Let me tell you ..... it was BOMB. :D
