It's Chocolate Cake Day! Here's where to get some of the best in town

If you haven't heard, today is officially Chocolate Cake Day--and that's all the excuse you need to celebrate with a little sweet, cakey cocoa consumption. We don't recommend tackling an entire cake on your own, but there's no harm in jumping on the bandwagon with a slice from one of these local goodies.

Here are a few suggestions of where to find some truly amazing chocolate cakes in the Twin Cities area. And they'll work just as well for a Valentine's Day dinner.

The Ancho Diablo (left) is chocolate layer cake frosted with chocolate
ancho buttercream and enrobed in bittersweet chocolate ganache. If

Chocolate Cake. This triple-layer cake is filled with Bailey's white
chocolate mousse and topped with chocolate shavings.
