Fearless Cakes 

What you need:

Cake -
3 cups granulated sugar
3 cups all purpose flour (sifted)
1 cup plus 2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
2 1/4 tsp baking soda
3 eggs (room temperature)
3/4 cups vegetable oil
1 1/2 cup whole milk
1 1/2 cup hot coffee (I used decaf)
Frosting - 
1 3/4 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
7.5 oz unsweetened chocolate (finely chopped)
12 TBsp unsalted butter (room temperature, cut into small pieces)
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

How to make them:

Cake -
Preheat oven to 350˚F.
Grease and flour the bottom of three 8" round cake pans.
In a bowl, sift together the sugar, flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder, and baking soda, set aside.
In a separate bowl of an electric mixer, beat the eggs a little, then add in vegetable oil and milk, stir to mix.
With the mixer on low, pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, mix on low until well combined.
Pour the hot coffee into the batter and mix on medium-low heat until smooth (the batter will be soupy).
Divide the batter, between the prepared cake pans.
Bake for 35-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out cleanly.
Remove from the oven and let cool completely.
Frosting - 
In a saucepan, bring the sugar and heavy cream to a boil over medium heat.
Reduce the heat to low and simmer the mixture for 6 minutes (be careful NOT to let the saucepan overflow).
Remove from heat and stir in the chocolate and butter until they have completely melted.
Stir in the vanilla extract.
Let the frosting cool completely, whisking every now and then during the cooling.
Once completely cool at room temperature, frosting will be spreadable.
Using a round biscuit cutter cut out mini cakes from the larger cake.
Stack two mini cakes, spreading a layer of frosting in between them.
Then frost the outside of the cake, garnish with a Whopper on top.
Take a bite and ENJOY!


A little about Dauntless...

DEFINITION: [Pronounced: Dawn-t-less] Fearless, undaunted. Courageously resolute, especially in the face of danger or difficulty; not discouraged. Undaunted: resolute, especially in the face of danger. Note: Being fearless and being undaunted are two different things.
HISTORYDauntless was a faction formed by those who blamed cowardice for society's problems. The only answer is to face your fears and find bravery. 
TRAITSLoud, expressive. Bravery, courage, fighting and physical skills. In charge of security, their primary purpose is to guard the fence that surrounds the city. They began guarding the fence five years prior. Before that they patrolled the factionless sector.
PHYSICAL TRAITS: All-black clothes, tattoos, piercings, unnatural hair colours.
DAUNTLESS INITIATION: Taken very seriously. Transfer initiates have to jump out of the moving train that is transporting them to Dauntless HQ, & onto the roof of a building. They must then jump off a seven-story building without knowing what lies at the bottom. 
The initiates are separated during the first stage of initiation. The Dauntless born are trained by Lauren, and the transfers are trained by Four and Eric. Initiates all sleep in one room (girls & boys). 3 stages of initiation: 
1Physicalinitiates learn how to fight and are pitted against each other to prove what they have learned. Scored based on their victories and losses.  
2Emotional- initiates are put into a simulation where they face their fears. They are not aware it is only a simulation, and have to calm themselves to get out. (The Divergent seem to have a knack for this stage, as they are aware it is not real.) 
3Mentalinitiates are put into their fear landscapes, which reaches for every fear within the person subjected to it and creates a simulation in which they must face each one. This time, they are aware that it is not real. Those not in the top 5 of each initiation class typically end up as guards. Those not in the top 10 end up factionless.
RANDOM FACTS: Only faction to use the train. Muffins and toast for breakfast.
RELATIONS: On neutral terms with all factions.
