This month we partnered with the Astrotwins to reveal the ways your zodiac sign informs your chocolate preferences. According to the Astrotwins, "Each zodiac sign has a distinct set of personality traits — and believe it or not, there's a chocolate recipe out there to match every horoscope sign."
You, Pisces, embody traits from all signs of the zodiac, and as such, chocolate is all about endless depth and layers of sweetness. Like a mermaid, you'll dive to deep depths to experience pure chocolate bliss. That's why a stacked chocolate layer cake is the perfect treat for you. You might not know what lies on the inside, but you have no problem tackling that cake layer by layer to find out. Anyway, you're a pro at keeping a little secret. You don't mind if your dessert does the same.
Chocolate layer cakes may require time and work in the kitchen, but that's no sweat for you. There's little you won't do for the prospect of the sweet layers of chocolate cake that lie ahead. Here are a few favorites that will speak to your soul.
This cake comes with two flavors: chocolate and more chocolate. It's the three-layer chocolate cake divided with ultra-smooth, rich chocolate buttercream that's built to take you to the depths of complete and absolute chocolate bliss.
One look at this coconut-flecked cake stacked with four thick, chocolatey layers and you know it must be yours. Each and every dimension calls to you, from the dark chocolate cake to the coconut cream cheese frosting to the coconut caramel glaze.
For you, Pisces, this cake isn't as much about tall layers as it is about what lies beneath. This two-layer cake will speak right to your heart with the complex relationship between the chocolate and sour cream. Present in both the cake and the frosting, sour cream delivers a subtle tang that makes this cake sing.
Traditionally baked in a sheet pan, you're happy to up the ante with three chocolate-filled layers, paired with ganache and Kahlua-scented chocolate frosting.
It's a step away from a classic layer cake, but you simply can't resist the extra layers that come with these mini icebox cakes, assembled with chocolate wafer cookies and sweet, malted whipped cream.
