Father’s Day- ‘Next Level’ Turtles Chocolate Ganache Cake

Happy Father’s Day to all dads today, but especially to my dad! He does so much for my brother and I and we do not do enough to show our appreciation for him! So today we cooked him yummy breakfast burritos, we are going to the driving range… And I baked him this cake!


My dad’s favorite chocolate is Turtles, he likes them so much he hides the box from us, haha, so I just knew I had to incorporate them in a cake for him. I baked a two layer moist chocolate cake with vanilla Turtles buttercream and caramel filling and topped with vanilla buttercream, rich chocolate ganache, and of course more crumbled Turtles and a touch of whipped cream.

I also had a bit of batter left so I made six cupcakes- my brother tasted one and has dubbed them the ‘next level’ cupcake, hence the title of my post. They are his new fave! : )


I hope you all have a wonderful Father’s Day and a great week! : )
