Chocolate vertical layer cake is one of the most decadent cakes I’ve made, a great symphony of flavors and textures. Moist chocolate sponge cake filled with apricot jam and mascarpone coffee frosting, rolled and topped over a crunchy, buttery biscuit base, everything coated in Mascarpone frosting, topped with chocolate ganache and decorated with chocolate shards.
Not only it looks awesome due to its vertical layers but it’s also very delicate and flavorful. Coffee, chocolate and apricots make such a great flavor combination and the almond, buttery chocolate biscuit adds an amazing texture, so don’t think of skipping this step 🙂
Decorating the cake with chocolate shards makes the cake more impressive even though it’s probably one of the easiest ways to decorate a cake. Hope you will try it out and enjoy!
