Rich Two-Layer Chocolate Cake
Updated: Nov 16, 2018
This delicious cake was a big hit with my family! Despite the ferrero rocher decor, the cake is purely a rich chocolate cake that I'd adapted from a red velvet cake recipe I know quite well. I've linked the recipe to it below. :)
- Remove red food colouring
- Add two tablespoons of cocoa powder
Make sure to not overbeat this cake batter, else you'll lose out on the moist texture!
Chocolate Buttercream Recipe:
I opted for a smooth buttercream recipe, which was super easy!
The only thing I changed in this recipe was adding a bit of extra butter (roughly two tablespoons) to get rid of the sugary texture.
Splitting the cake:
Since this was a two-layer cake, I made two batches of the cake (the recipe is large enough if you use a 9x15in round tray).
To split the cake, I use toothpicks and a knife, as well as precise measurements. Don't flake off on this part, else your cake could be lopsided. Check out the tutorial for more tips :)
