"THE" CAKE....Reese's Peanut Butter Cake


REESE'S PEANUT BUTTER CAKE Yum

This my friends, is THE "CAKE" in our household. requested by all 4 males in the house for each and every birthday and numerous other occasions too. 

It is scrumptious, rich and satisfying and I do not even love cake.


REESE'S PEANUT BUTTER CAKE

1 pkg. Devil’s Food Cake or Any flavor chocolate Cake Mix
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup heavy cream
1 bag mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and or the stand up bag of really mini's

Prepare cake as directed on box using two 9″ cake pans.  Let cool.

Peanut Butter Buttercream Frosting:
Place the confectioners’ sugar, peanut butter, butter, vanilla, and salt in a bowl. Mix with an electric mixer on medium-low speed until creamy, scraping down the bowl with a rubber spatula as you work. Add the cream and beat on high speed until the mixture is light and smooth.
To assemble the cake, place one cake layer on the serving plate.  Spread peanut butter frosting on top of the cake layer. Place the second cake layer on top of the frosting.  Frost the top and outside of the cake with remaining peanut butter frosting.  Decorate with mini, halved and chopped Reese’s cups as desired.

 Happy Boys and their cakes!
This guy, My partner in crime, my hero and babe for life has a Birthday today!!!!!
 Bet he will be getting one of these!!
