We love this cake recipe for birthdays and special occasions! So chocolate-y and yummy.

This was not good at all. The cake recipe is very heavy and dense. I should have used my own home made chocolate cake recipe. And 1 1/2 cups of nutella was way too much in the middle of an 8 inch cake. I took it to a family dinner and no one liked it. I took the rest home and threw it out.

YUMMY! Ever heard of those better-than-sex cakes? Well this could possibly take the cake!! I poured ganache over the frosting, then sprinkled on the nuts and topped with ferro chocolates. Everyone oohed and ahed then took a nap!!

This cake is TO DIE FOR. I used a chocolate box cake mix & spread a thin layer of melted nutella and topped with the whipped cream mixture. OMG the cream topping seriously is banana’s insane good. I had to literally force myself not to take anymore bites of it. My family went nuts & no lie probably 5 people if not more said it’s the best chocolate cake they’ve ever had. Thanks for sharing.

I made this cake this weekend for my husband’s birthday and it was amazing! It will definitely be my go to cake from now on!

This is my go to cake. I have never had any problems with the cream frosting. I always whip the mascarpone with the powdered sugar and vanilla until it is light and then whip the cream in and fold the nutella in by hand and it works great.
I also never serve it the day it is made. It gets much better if you let it rest over night!

I’m so sorry to hear you’ve had so much trouble with the frosting. It has more of a whipped cream texture than a buttercream frosting so it is very delicate. I always use room temperature mascarpone cheese and nutella and a very cold bowl. (I actually put mine in the freezer and take it out just before I whip up the cream) I hope this helps! It’s such a wonderful frosting I’d hate for you to miss out on it

The frosting wouldn’t set for me, either. I tried adding more powdered sugar, but no luck getting it to thicken. I’m going to cut my losses and make a standard cream cheese frosting with cocoa.

I had problems with the frosting, too. I wondered if I overbeat it. I expected the stiff peaks to take longer and all of a sudden they were stiff and then the frosting got grainy and hard to spread. I did my best, though, and ended up covering the sides of the cake with nuts, too – so it looked prettier. It still tasted delicious and I will try it again.

I had the same issue with the frosting! Any tips? I saw it start to form and then it just broke apart on me. I ended up going semi-homemade by mixing in the nutella to a tub of store-bought cream cheese frosting that I had.
