Triple Chocolate Cake

I’ve fallen a bit behind with my posts lately, trying to catch up this weekend and this day is just perfect for a triple chocolate cake as it happens to be birthday of three very special people, my sister and twin nieces in Finland. <3

White, milk and dark chocolate cake with a hint of salt and fresh strawberries. Long recipe post, but based on the feedback I got from those who tasted, this cake is worth the time.

I used the same base for all three cakes and baked them all at once using fan setting of my oven (AEG competence), baking two cakes in middle and one in the bottom of the oven.
