The best gift anyone can give you is inspiration! I usually make my own birthday cakes and today I was planning on making a standard rosette cake. My husband surprised me in the morning with the amazing Nordic Ware Haunted Skull Cake Pan (purchase here) so I was determined to use it to make my birthday cake.
Halloween has always been my favorite holiday so this would be the perfect cake for me. I decided to make a Triple Chocolate Cake, since you don’t use a lot of buttercream with this cake, I wanted to use a cake that would be delicious on it’s own and this chocolate cake is absolutely amazing!
This isn’t a sponsored post for Nordic Ware (even though I wish I was sponsored by them); I’ve always lusted over their bundt pans and seasonal bakeware. If you ever pick up anything made by Nordic Ware you’ll understand all the fuss—they continue to make over 90% of their goods here in America (Minnesota) rather than cut costs/quality and move overseas. I’m a bakeware connoisseur and I’ve yet to find anything better than Nordic Ware and the Nordic Ware Haunted Skull Cake Pan is one of the coolest pans I’ve ever used.
