  • Get 3 cake pans of 8 inches ready by placing parchment paper circles at their bottom. Next, grease the sides of the pans and preheat your oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Combine the dry ingredients while whisking them together. Then add the vegetable oil, buttermilk, and eggs to the mixture of dry ingredients and combine well.
  • Now add vanilla to boiling water and then add this water to your mixture. Divide this prepared batter into 3 pans evenly and then bake them for 30-33 minutes. You can even use the toothpick test to check whether the cake has been prepared or not. If the toothpick comes out clean, the chocolate cake has been baked, if not, you need to bake more.
  • After removing the cakes, allow them to cool down completely. Now prepare your frosting till the chocolate cake cools down. For this, beat butter and shortening together till it is a smooth mixture.
  • Add 4 cups of sugar to this batter until it becomes smooth. Next add vanilla, water or milk, and another 5 cups of powdered sugar to the frosting. You need to add cocoa now and then remaining water or milk until there is right consistency in your frosting.
  • Place your cooled first cake and spread this prepared frosting on top of it. Add that second cake to it and repeat the step of adding frosting to this second cake as well. Place the third cake on the top and then place the frosting on the outside layer of the cake.
  • Prepare your chocolate ganache by heating the whipped cream until it boils and then pouring it over your chocolate chips placed in a bowl. Allow it to settle down for 2 to 3 minutes and then whisk them together. Then, drizzle this prepared chocolate ganache on the top of your cake and add sprinkles to it to give it a final decorative look.
