Peanut Butter Silk Cake

If you are like me and bless the person who figured out the chocolate/peanut butter combo into heaven, you’ll love this cake.  It’s a great option for birthdays and other major occasions with a pre-made sponge and where the creamy filling makes it the special cake everyone will talk about.  Just make sure you consider everyone’s allergies before you attempt this.
