Chocolate Hazelnut Nutcracker Cake

This was a simple cake to make! I wish I would have put more chocolate in it but I ran out of chocolate and patience!
It was loved by my family at our annual holiday party so it was a success. I did feel the cake was a tad dry even though I put enough of the rum syrup on all 3 of the layers...you could definately taste that rum and I am not much of a rum person but I loved the chantilly creme...YUMMY! My auntie ended up taking most of it home since it was her bday the night before and she called me the following day saying the cake tasted it wonderful even more so than the day before. So I guess letting it sit for a day makes it more moist?
