Drippy Chocolate Nutella Birthday Cake

My man of almost 13 years (whutttt!) celebrated his birthday in December - he loves chocolate hazelnut, so I made him a dark chocolate with Nutella buttercream cake with a drippy shiny yummy ganache topping. Frigging perfect. I do love the drippy look - reminds me of Wayne Thiebaud's wonderful cake paintings! I've always loved those paintings. Thick paint spread on like a perfect buttercream as though you could eat the canvas, modest simple cakes displayed neatly, almost obsessively, side by side - ready to be sliced for eager customers or boxed up and gingerly taken home for a sweet birthday party. 

Happy happy birthday RT! Love you so much!
