Recipe time

Not sure that anyone will even try this...but it is seriously delicious and I'm all in to sharing delicious recipes.
Chocolate-ItalicStrawberry Celebration Cake
1 pkg (18-1/4 ox) chocolate cake mix
1 pkg (3.9 oz) instant chocolate pudding mix
4 eggs
1 cup sour cream
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup canola oil
4 oz semisweet chocolate melted (oops...just realized I didn't melt it...but I think it turned out better that way)
2 cups butter, softened
4 cups confectioners' sugar
3/4 cup baking cocoa
1/2 cup 2% milk
2 oz semisweet chocolate melted
1 lb fresh strawberries, hulled
4 oz semisweet chocolate chopped
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
Combine the first 7 ingredients; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes. Transfer to 2 greased & floured 9 in round cake pans.
Bake at 350* for 28-32 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 0 min before removing to wire racks to cool completely. Beat the butter, confectioners' sugar and cocoa until blended; add milk and beat until smooth. Spread frosting between layers & over top and sides of cake.
Pipe or spoon melted chocolate onto waxed paper in decorative designs; let stand until set (I used a sandwich bag and cut the corner off). Arrange strawberries on top of cake. For ganache, place chocolate in a small bowl. Heat cream just to a boil; pour over chocolate; whisk until smooth. Drizzle over top of cake, allowing to drape down sides. Top with chocolate garnishes.
I seriously can't wait to bake this cake again...
