There isn’t anything quite like a layer cake to celebrate an occasion, and there’s nothing like a towering devil’s food cake to pull out all the stops for a Valentine’s Day dessert. And the best part is that this cake is a cinch to make: You don’t even need a stand mixer for the cake itself. All you need is one bowl and some good chocolate and Dutch-process cocoa powder. If you want to really double up on the chocolate, you can frost the cake with chocolate Swiss buttercream, but you could also opt for contrasting layers of cake and tangy cream cheese buttercream. Either way, it’s a showstopper of a dessert.
