Let Them Eat Cake

The Chocolate Blackout Cake also known as the pepper cake also known as the cake I made for Katie's wedding is fast becoming my signature recipe. I am making three 10" cakes for a Mother's Day party tomorrow. Here are the ingredient amounts needed (cake, ganache, coconut frosting):
7 1/2 cups cake flour
3 cups dutch-process cocoa powder
6 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3 teaspoons salt
5 pounds butter
11 1/4 cups sugar
18 whole eggs
5 tablespoons vanilla
3 cups buttermilk
3 cups coffee
1 1/2 pounds semisweet chocolate
1 1/2 pounds bittersweet chocolate
6 cups heavy cream
2 cups toffee bits
18 egg yolks
1 1/2 cups corn syrup
1 1/2 cups sweetened coconut milk
2 14 oz. packages flaked sweetened coconut
Those 10" cake layers have to bake for 45 minutes each. Lots of time for blogging while they're in the oven.
