When my husband's birthday rolls around he knows he's getting his favorite cake (well one of his favorites, he has several). He has no say in how I decorate it but he doesn't really care as long as it's a chocolate cake with cream cheese filling. This year, I used chocolate butter cream and fondant as a frosting. I was hoping to practice my zig zag piping technique on this cake, but I had a severe migraine that night and just wanted to finish. The design is not what I had in mind, but I was able to do it in five minutes. My husband, to be honest, doesn't care about the look, just the taste. I had extra batter from the 6" cake, so I made cupcakes with chocolate butter cream for a church function.
