Happy Birthday, Audrey Hepburn!

Classic chocolate cake with salted caramel layers

“Let’s face it, a nice creamy chocolate cake does a lot for a lot of people; it does for me.” – Audrey Hepburn

We couldn’t have said it better than that. The beautiful actress-turned-philanthropist recognized the power of dessert, and we love her for it. And since Audrey was one Fair Lady and today is her birthday, we simply had to dedicate a post to chocolate cake.

We wonder what her favorite recipe was!

Just like the Breakfast at Tiffany’s star, chocolate cake is a true classic that everyone can appreciate. There’s nothing quite like a slice of rich, velvety cake frosted to perfection. Truth be told, the right recipe can turn an ordinary night into a fabulous one.

We’ve put together a list of some of our very best recipes that would be Audrey-approved. Face it: there are far worse (and few better) things in life than treating yourself to a slice of chocolate cake.

Inspiration for your glamorous chocolate weekend:

You can't go wrong with this simple chocolate on chocolate combination.
