Caroline & Peter's Anniversary Cake

My cousin asked me to make a cake for her 15 yr wedding anniversary. All she asked for was something heart shaped and small. This is what I made.

I must credit Bakerella for the idea http://www.bakerella.com/a-valentines-day-gift-box-of%E2%80%A6/ ...this was my attempt at her brilliant Valentines' Day cake. I don't think my workmanship comes anywhere near close to hers, but for a first go by an amateur, I'm not overly ashamed :).

Chocolate cake with dark chocolate truffle ganache and coffee buttercream. The 'chocolates' are chocolate cake balls lightly flavoured with coffee as well. Everything is handmade and edible, except for the 'chocolate' wrappers.
