CHOCOLATE BANANA CAKE

My niece Camila is turning 14 on Monday but we got together today to celebrate her birthday. I use my family as guinea pigs when it comes to tasting new flavor combinations. So I baked a chocolate cake and made a really yummy banana cream cheese filling. I also added fresh cut bananas and an amazing caramel rum sauce. I always add a thin spread of chocolate ganache to each cake layer for a more chocolaty flavor...is that even a word! Well, you know what I mean, the more chocolate the better. So I frosted the cake with a light mocha buttercream and topped it with more chocolate ganache and caramel sauce and chocolate chip cookie crumbs. Oh Yea! I know you are drooling by now....it was amazing!
