CAKE FLAVOR: Chocolate Cake
FILLING(S): Chocolate Thin Mint Buttercream
OUTER FROSTING: Chocolate Buttercream
DECOR: Chocolate Ganache and Thin Mint Cookies
Thin Mints are definitely a fan favorite. It has a light crunchy cookie that has a light minty flavor. For this cake I wanted to mimic the light minty flavor, so instead of adding artificial mint extract to the cake and/or the frosting, I added Thin Mint crumbs to the chocolate buttercream. The crumbs add a texture element to the cake while adding just enough mint flavoring. I was very happy with how this cake turned out. I wanted a simple design that highlighted the cookie and I feel like I did just that.
