Vanila Chocolate Chip Cake with Chocolate Cream Icing

This cake was delicious. I made a sheet vanila cake with chocolate chips. Then, cut it into 4 rectangles and stacked into a 4 layer cake with 3 layers of chocolate cream and chocolate ganache over it. Then, added some strawberries an voila!

For this cake, you have to use the same steps I used in my last cake, the Tripple Chocolate Cake - where you can also find link to get the recipe for the chocolate cream and ganache.


Triple Chocolate Mouse Cake with Ganache

This cake is just to die for! It's one of my best cakes ever! It's a chocolate cake, from a cake mix, but with extra stuff to make it scrumptious LOL. Anyway, I added:
  • full fat sour cream
  • strong coffee
  • butter
  • vanilla extract
  • extra cocoa powder
  • 2% milk

Then, instead of making the usual cream cheese or butter cream icing, I decided to make the filling with chocolate cream; which is a recipe from a chocolate cream pie I've done it before. But, this time, I used as icing for the cake. It's a three layer cake topped with chocolate ganache and strawberries. The cake is just so delicious and moist; with a decadent chocolate taste.

This cake must be kept in the refrigerator b/c the chocolate cream will get very soft if kept out for too long. Also, the ganache starts to melt a bit.

This can also be made into cupcakes and topped with the chocolate cream then covered with chocolate ganache. It's probably my next thing.

This cake is not perfect looking but that's not what's about here. I added the chocolate ganache over the last layer of chocolate cream and it looks a little like a marble pattern.
