Awesome cake! I made this recipe, exactly as written, to top off my St. Paddy's day menu. The chocolate cake, in my opinion, is absolutely perfect! I will probably use this recipe in the future either with or without the Bailey's frosting. Speaking of the frosting... I followed the directions and topped each layer cake with the frosting and then poured the chocolate ganache over the top of it all. Overall, this was a fantastic cake, but unnecessarily overly sweet. Next time I will only put the frosting in between the two layers and just the ganache over the top. I also had a problem getting the ganache to a good "pouring" consistency as written so I'll have to re-evaluate that part of the recipe the next time I make it - and there will be a next time :)
