DIRECTIONS

  • Whip cream in a chilled bowl. Beat until stiff peaks, being careful not to make butter!
  • In a separate bowl, mix cream cheese, brown sugar, vanilla and salt until combined.
  • Fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture. Leaving no streaks of the cream cheese mixture.
  • Slice each cake round horizontally making 4 layers.
  • Place the bottom layer of cake on a cake stand, put 1/4 of frosting on bottom layer, spreading to the edges. It is ok to have it extend over the edges a bit to show on the outside.
  • Place the 2nd layer of cake and apply the next 1/4 of frosting, pushing it out to edges. Repeat until all layers of cake are used. Spread the last 1/4 of frosting on top, making it look nice and swirly.
  • If you would like more decoration on the top, take a block of chocolate or a Hershey bar and make chocolate shavings with a vegetable peeler. Sprinkle on top.
