super choco robo cake

When my husband and I traveled to Argentina for our honeymoon, we brought back a jar of dulce de leche. I sought a cake recipe that incorporated this caramel-like spread and struck gold when I found this decadent one that included all of my husband’s favorite flavors – peanut butter, coffee, bananas, dulce de leche and chocolate. I promised I would make this cake for his birthday, so Happy Birthday, Bob!

I made one 7 inch and one 9 inch chocolate cake and sliced each into three layers, On each layer, I spread dulce de leche, peanut butter mousse and sliced bananas. I used a chocolate ganache frosting, and then decorated the sides with sliced almonds and piped more ganache for the borders.

My husband loves robots, so I created a robot topper out of marzipan and then colored it gold; it also held the tall gold sparkler candles for a special effect! I heard some “Oh my God’s” across the room as guests ate the cake – they were gratifying remarks after all the work!
