The calendar year is filled up with so many fun holidays, and we just couldn’t let this one pass by without a mention. If a girl loves anything more than jewelry, it’s got to be chocolate. So call up everyone you know and tell them that it’s Chocolate Cake Day! What do you think of when you think of the best piece of chocolate cake that you’ve ever had? We think about those cozy Friday nights with a bunch of girlfriends and a good movie. Nothing puts your mind or heart at ease like having beautiful sweet friends—and some sweet chocolate cake. Do you have friends that are as sweet as chocolate cake? Why not show them how much they mean to you with a little charm for their charm bracelet? We especially love the 14K gold “Special Friend” charm. (But this 3D cake charm is pretty sweet, too!)
What’s better than a plain old chocolate cake? If you’re thinking about sharing it with some friends, you want to add a little something special. A charming idea would be to put some sweet filling inside! Here are some of our favorite chocolate cake filling ideas on this very special Chocolate Cake Day:
- Traditional buttercream is always an excellent idea. Cocoa powder, melted chocolate, or vanilla flavoring add a special twist to traditional buttercream. You can even add some food coloring for an extra pop of excitement.
- Have you heard of ganache? It’s made of equal parts high quality chocolate and heavy cream. It can create a smooth textured filling for your chocolate cake. You can flavor it with fruit purees, nut butters, or other flavoring extracts.
- We can’t say enough about cream cheese. Mix it with butter, sugar, and vanilla for a great chocolate cake filling.
- Chantilly frosting is made from whipped cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Add some cookie crumble for a complementary flavored filling for chocolate cake.
What are you waiting for? Get your girlfriends together for some charming conversation, sweet treats, and great memories. Happy Chocolate Cake Day from Classic Charms!
