A Chocolate Covered Strawberry Birthday Cake

birthday cake
This is the birthday cake that my husband got for me! Those are chocolate-covered strawberries on the top and around the base!

The cake layers are chocolate; the filling is chocolate mousse, not too sweet but with a rich chocolate flavor. The white buttercream is also not too sweet, and it's not made with the kind of fat (whatever it is that some bakeries use to cut costs) that coats the whole inside of your mouth. This cake is good!

Thanks for the birthday wishes that you left in comments! We had a good day celebrating.

We're taking a much quieter day today, with naps and leftovers all around. :)
