Sweet Treats Saturday: Hazelnut and Mascarpone Chocolate Cake

Ok, so I've been a Giada kick.  I made this cake for a Hogmanay party I attended last night.  It was so easy (especially because you just use a boxed cake mix for the base) but the flavor was great.  A little hazelnut brittle, mixed with a mascarpone based frosting... and chocolate cake.  The chocolate and orange zest topping added just a bit of extra sweetness to the cake.

Here's the link to Giada's Hazelnut Crunch Cake with Mascarpone and Chocolate recipe.  Enjoy and wishing you a Happy New Year!!!
