Sparkling Chocolate and Peppermint Cake for Valentine's Day

Chocolate Peppermint Cake, Cake with Sparkling Sugar, Valentines Cake, Cake with Flowers, Wedding CakeOur Valentine's Day cake this year is pure romance.  The cake inside is dark chocolate, filled with chocolate buttercream, chopped chocolate, and extra cake crumbs soaked in chocolate syrup.  Outside, a demure coat of pink peppermint buttercream is covered in a shower of sparkling sugar that's infused with peppermint and vanilla bean.  The sparkling sugar is so beautiful that the cake doesn't really need any other decoration, but I placed a few roses on top for a little extra flair.
