Love This Toffee & Almond Crunch Cake

What a fantastic looking cake to make with that delicious frosting that is to die for , I really love this cake recipe as soon as I found it .. such a great cake to make over a weekend to enjoy with family or close friends

Layers of tender chocolate cake and chocolaty sour cream frosting, this dessert on its own is completely spectacular. Patti Dellamonica-Bauler, the pastry chef at One Market in San Francisco, takes it one step further by covering it in toasted almonds and crushed toffee candy.
