Cocoa Buttermilk Cake with Scrolled Tuiles

Let a graduate know he or she is congratulated and adored: Our standout chocolate sheet cake has intense flavor and a rich, dense frosting made from melted bittersweet chocolate and cream cheese. Atop the cake is a pile of small "diplomas," airy tuile cookies that are curled around the handle of a wooden spoon and tied with strips of sour candy.

    I made this for a friend's graduation. While I think both the cake and the frosting recipes are good, if I ever make this cake again, I wouldn't put the two together because it was just too rich. I thought it was just me, but I have had two people tell me that it was a little on the rich side even with small servings. I would probably use the chocolate frosting with a vanilla cake. Just one opinion...

    My cousin made this for me when I graduated college in 2006. I LOVED it, it was so perfect, tasted great, and she said not too hard to make. Wonderful recipe and definitely a stand out graduation cake.

    I sent this recipe to my friend who, should I say is cooking challenged. She at first laughed and said there was no way that she could do this for her daughter who was graduating, but I told her that it was fairly easy and to go for it. She managed to pull it off by doing 2 box sheet cakes and layering them. She used Betty Crocker frosting, 5 cans worth. And then made the tuiles, which she admitted were pretty easy. It looked beautiful. If she can do this, then anyone can.
