Chocolate Candy Box Cake

chocolate box

This cake is for chocolate lovers only. In fact, you should probably be obsessed with chocolate in order to make this cake since every component has chocolate; from the chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream base, to the swirled chocolate wafer sticks wrapped around it, to the chocolate candy chunks on top!

Making this cake is more of an exercise in self control, rather than decorating challenge. It’s “Super Easy” on a scale of “Easy to Difficult”. The self control comes in when you try to refrain from sampling all of the toppings prior to putting them on the cake!
