    why do you do these things to me? I literally just left the kitchen after baking 4 of your butter cakes…yes, 4!!!!
    I can only imagine that this is equally delicious!

    Heavens! How did I miss this cake? I’ll heat up my kitchen for that any ole’ day. Towels in a ice bucket for my neck beat the heat every time 😉

    Oh my goodness – I’m not even that big of a fan of chocolate and this cake has me drooling! Love it girl.

    I love chocolate and hazelnuts but have never cared a lot for chocolate cake with chocolate icing; guess I prefer more of a contrast. BUT…I would definitely take this icing and eat it by the spoonfuls.

    Well, I’ve spent most of the day on this cake, and am supposed to take it to a party (the only birthday cake that will be there) in 30 minutes, and it’s a mess. How can you pipe icing that is Nutella, whipped cream and mascarpone? For heaven’s sake, it melts with the heat of your hands! Now I have to transport a cake that is melting and has layers that are sliding on the whipped cream/nutella filling. 3/4 cup of powered sugar wasn’t nearly enough to make a consistency suitable for anything but last minute garnish. Hopefully it will at least taste good.
