Chocolate Layered Dessert with Creamy Filling and Chocolate Shavings



For the Cake Layers:

  • 1 box of chocolate cake mix (or your favorite homemade chocolate cake recipe)
  • Ingredients as per cake mix instructions (eggs, oil, water)

For the Creamy Filling:

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup mascarpone cheese (or cream cheese)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the Topping:

  • Chocolate shavings (dark or milk chocolate, as per preference)


1. Prepare the Cake Layers:

  • Preheat your oven according to the instructions on the cake mix box.
  • Prepare the chocolate cake batter as per the instructions on the box.
  • Divide the batter evenly into two round cake pans and bake as directed.
  • Once baked, allow the cakes to cool completely. Once cooled, slice each cake horizontally to create four thin layers of cake.

2. Prepare the Creamy Filling:

  • In a large mixing bowl, whip the heavy cream until soft peaks form.
  • In another bowl, combine the mascarpone cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. Beat until smooth.
  • Gently fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture until fully incorporated and smooth.

3. Assemble the Dessert:

  • In a large glass dish (like the one in the image), place one layer of the chocolate cake.
  • Spread a generous layer of the creamy filling over the cake layer.
  • Repeat the layering process with the remaining cake layers and creamy filling, finishing with a layer of the creamy filling on top.
  • Cover the top layer generously with chocolate shavings.

4. Chill and Serve:

  • Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight, to allow the flavors to meld and the dessert to set.
  • Serve chilled, scooping out portions to reveal the beautiful layers.

Enjoy your delicious, creamy, chocolate layered dessert!
