The ultimate chocolate peppermint cake

This was the most intense cake I've ever made. It was also one of the most delicious. Normally, I'm not a huge cake person, so I'm fairly selective with recipes I undertake. And usually my handy dandy husband helps (in this case, he was the awesome assembler). :)

I am also proud of this cake because, despite the many warnings and concerns among the reviewers on, I felt like the whole thing was a great success. More on that later.

For now, pictures!!

First, the components:

1. Dark Chocolate Ganache (yes, that is a finger mark)
2. Peppermint Marshmallowy Frosting
3. White chocolate peppermint whipped cream
4. Devil's Food Cake

Second, the assembly:

The final delicious and gigantic product:
