pistachio cake with chocolate ganache

Chocolate & Irish Cream Pistachio Cake


Isn’t this chocolate pistachio cake simply STUNNING?! I love everything about this gorgeous cake! It’s made with a heavenly combination of chocolate, pistachios and Irish cream! This unique and delicious chocolate cake was inspired by one of my favorite chocolate truffles. The rich pistachio buttercream is made with pistachio butter, Irish cream and cream cheese. It’s one of my all-time favorite frostings; I can eat it by the spoonful!

The chocolate cake layers I use for this cake are moist and rich in flavor. I’ve used the same versatile recipe for many recipes. The chocolate cake layers are soaked with more Irish cream to give the cake even more flavor! And to make this cake even more special, I coated it with chocolate ganache and garnished it with my favorite pistachio truffles! This unique pistachio cake recipe has been a huge hit on my blog and for good reason – it’s soo good! You’ll love every bite of this chocolate and nut cake.

I purchase these pistachio truffles from a local Russian supermarket. I have yet to find them online anywhere, but I will add a link if they become available! Godiva also sells a similar truffle.
