Chocolate Bark Cake

Do you guys think 2013 is going by really fast? I mean, weren’t we celebrating New Year’s Eve just yesterday AND now, Valentine’s day is just a few short weeks away? lol

But, I am not complaining coz Valentine’s Day EQUALS awesome candies! 😉

Hubby and I don’t really do anything special on this day of LOVE. But, we are crazy about the candies and chocolates that hit the stores (well… me more than him :P)

Last night, we went to Jewel and bought SO MUCH chocolate that it would probably last us all the way till next year! 

chocolate bark cake 2So, do you do anything special on Valentine’s day?

Whatever you are doing, make sure to leave some room for my ULTIMATE romantic cake! 

The idea for this cake came in the most RANDOM way possible (which is mostly the case with my cakes…heheh)…

There I was, lying lazily on the couch, enjoying some leftover rose syrup chocolate barks from Christmas when it occurred to me how good they would taste on a cake.

Well, next thing I knew… I was in the kitchen getting ready to find out! lol 😀

But since I can’t… let me describe this DELICIOUS-NESS…

It’s a SINFULLY moist chocolate cake covered in a fragrant rose water buttercream icing and covered in rose syrup chocolate bark pieces and it’s PINK!

Square shaped Chocolate cake (Dimensions: 4×6)

Cover them in rose frosting.

    How absolutely adorable! Love all the pink and the chocolate, of course. My hubby and I don’t do anything either. I also specifically tell him not to buy me flowers either, they are a rip off on Valentines. I take chocolates however. Would love some of this cake …yum.

    Hi ! Someday I’m going to make this as my birthday cake, that’s how pretty it is. Just one question:-How did you make the cake pink?

  16. Abeer

    January 23, 2013 at 6:52 pm

    Hey Holly, you should totally make this cake. It’s fun and delicious!!!!
    I use gel coloring to color my frosting. I used a little of wilton’s red color and that made my white buttercream icing pink.
    If you check out my link to buttercream icing, you will see that you can also use an indian rose syrup called "rooh afza" which is already reddish pink in color and using a few tablespoons of that will also make your icing pink plus it will make your icing smell and taste like roses 😀

    This is gorgeous!! I know this may be a silly question but how was it when you cut slices? I was thinking about making a white chocolate peppermint cake with bark on the sides for Christmas and thought it might not be worth struggle of cutting it… I don’t want it to be a messy frustrating mess for guests!!

    @Ashley….Glad to hear you liked this cake. It’s definitely a crowd pleaser. When i made it, some of the bark pieces were big. Those were hard to cut through. The next time, I used smaller bark pieces and those were very easy to cut. Also, instead of having people cut this cake, i cut slices and put them on plates and handed out the plates. Hope this helps 🙂
