Chocolate Cream Filling
- Once cakes are cool melt chocolate- dark chocolate, milk chocolate and white chocolate chips in individual bowls. Set aside to cool.
- In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment mix together the first 3 cups of heavy cream and powdered sugar until stiff peaks form. Divide into three equal parts. Fold in milk chocolate into one part, dark chocolate into second whipped cream and the white chocolate into the last bit of whipped cream.
- To make ganache in a small saucepan heat heavy cream for 4-6 minutes. In a medium-sized bowl pour in chocolate chips and pour heavy cream on top of chocolate. Let sit for 3 minutes then stir until completely combined. The hot cream will melt the chocolate. Once combined set aside.
- Cut the two cakes in half and on a serving platter/cake plate place the first layer of chocolate cake, spread with white chocolate whipped cream, place next cake layer followed by milk chocolate whipped cream then a chocolate cake layer then the dark chocolate whipped cream then a chocolate cake layer.
