It's Katrina's birthday month! That means we will be making a decadent cake every Friday this month in celebration. Probably all including lots of chocolate. And lots of layers. This cake seemed like a great way to kick of birthday month celebration - chock full of chocolate, cookie dough, and SPRINKLES! Nothing screams celebration like rainbow sprinkles!
Technically, this isn't cake at all. It's brownie and cookie dough layers without any actual cake. But when you layer them and cover them with ganache and frosting and sprinkles, what can you call it but cake? It looks so fancy!

Rolling out for layering
Roughly the right size
Matching up with the bottom of the pan means it's definitely the right size for fitting perfectly on the brownie layers!
Everyone should own a fondue pot. Even if you never use it for anything other than making ganache. But, also, FONDUE.
Shiny and smooth chocolate goodness!
A better shot of the Fat Fridays Forever shirt in action than the last time one was featured in a blog post. Spread a little bit of ganache on each layer.
You don't need much. It just helps keep the layers in place when you slice the cake.
LOOK AT IT.
It's not birthday (month) cake until it's surrounded by streamers and balloons, right?
And SO MANY sprinkles. You just can't have too many.
Look at those beautiful layers!
And ganache and frosting and sprinkles...just looking at it almost throws you into a sugar coma.
A slice of cake just hanging out on it's bed of sprinkles. Look how happy it looks!
Bottom line: If you love brownies, cookie dough, ganache, frosting, and sprinkles (and who doesn't), you've got to try making this for a special occastion. Like your own birthday month! I mean, it only happens once a year, right?Yum
