NUTELLA CHOCOLATE CAKE



This Nutella Chocolate Cake is a delicious combination of an incredibly moist chocolate cake and a sweet, delicious Nutella icing, all covered in chocolate ganache. Delish!
So I mentioned Monday that I spent the weekend with my cousin who was due with her baby any day. She gave birth to a healthy baby boy last night, less than 48 hours after I left. I would have bet money it was going to be a girl and most of our family agreed. He’s definitely a boy though and we can’t wait to spoil him! I’m totally bummed I miss the birth though.
