1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
Sprinkles

INSTRUCTIONS

2. Add all dry ingredients to a large bowl and whisk together.
3. Add eggs, buttermilk and vegetable oil to the dry ingredients and mix well.
4. Add vanilla to boiling water and add to mixture. Mix well.
5. Divide batter evenly between cakes pans and bake for 30-33 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out with a few crumbs.
6. Remove cakes from oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes, then remove to cooling racks to cool completely.
7. Make frosting while cakes cool. Beat together butter and shortening until smooth.
8. Slowly add 4 cups (460g) of powdered sugar and mix until smooth.
9. Add vanilla and half of the water or milk and mix until smooth.
10. Add another 5 cups (575g) of powdered sugar and mix until smooth.

18. Heat the heavy whipping cream just until it begins to boil, then pour it over the chocolate chips. Allow it to sit for 2-3 minutes, then whisk until smooth.
19. Drizzle the chocolate ganache around the edge of the cake, then pour the remainder of the ganache on top of the cake and spread evenly. I like to use a squeeze bottle for drizzling around the edges.
