    Made this cake for my boyfriend, and it was delicious. I didn't have cocoa powder for the whipped cream, so I just grated some dark chocolate and used that instead. Pictures are attached. Decorated it with chocolate shavings and strawberries. <br/><br/>I also chopped up strawberries and mixed them in with the cream I used for the filling in between layers. So good!<br/><br/>Tip - this cake is much better at room temperature. The first slice I had was when I took it out of the fridge and the cake was a little dry. I had more the next morning, and had left the cake out on the counter. It was so much better!
