Chocolate Hazelnut Biscotti Birthday Cake (Vegan)

I made this vegan Chocolate Hazelnut Biscotti cake for Cassidy's 30th birthday. Every year I bake Cassidy a birthday cake from scratch, and this year I wanted to make something super chocolatey and over-the-top. I don't have a recipe for this, but basically I made some chocolate hazelnut biscotti and used them to decorate a basic 2 layer chocolate cake iced in chocolate hazelnut buttercream, and topped with chocolate sprinkles. It isn't perfect looking, but it tasted fantastic and was a lot of fun to make. After some time the biscotti absorb some moisture from the buttercream and they get a brownie-like texture. Yummm.
