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!

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 😀

    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 🙂
