Chocolate Truffle Cake

Hope you guys had an incredible new year feast, we had a fantastic new year bash with my family and my parents..Did you guys have took any new year resolutions?? seriously i stopped taking resolution on this particular day coz i never able to keep up my resolution more than two or three days..Since i wanted to start this year with something sweet, i wanted to post this chocolate truffle cake i prepared few days back for my dad's birthday, this cake post was sitting in my draft since a long, today i dont want to miss to post this super rich and extremely addictive fabulous truffle cake..This cake tastes absolutely divine, an incredible dessert for a chocoholic person like me, my dad was pretty much happy to see his birthday cake with loads of chocolates and we just loved each and every spoon of this cake.
