Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans or line them with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

  3. Add the eggs, buttermilk, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients. Mix until well combined, but do not overmix.

  4. Gradually stir in the boiling water until the batter is smooth. The batter will be thin, but that's okay.

  5. Pour the batter evenly into the prepared cake pans. Buy now:- White Marble Cake Stand

  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean.

  7. Remove the cakes from the oven and allow them to cool in the pans for 10 minutes. Then, transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

  8. While the cakes are cooling, prepare the frosting. In a large bowl, beat the softened butter until creamy. Gradually add the powdered sugar and cocoa powder, alternating with the heavy cream or milk, until the frosting is smooth and creamy. Beat in the salt and vanilla extract.

  9. Once the cakes are completely cooled, frost one layer of cake, then place the second layer on top and frost the top and sides of the cake with the remaining frosting.

  10. Decorate the cake as desired with chocolate shavings, sprinkles, or berries.
