Whipped Cream Chocolate Frosted Cake
Homemade chocolate cake, homemade cream filling and homemade chocolate frosting. This post will consist of three recipes with one delicious cake, you will want to save this one!
Recipe One: Make homemade chocolate cake in two 8″ or 9″ round cake pans, it’s OK to use a box mix. Click HERE for my cake recipe. Let the cakes cool in the pans for 5-10 minutes then carefully remove them and place on a cooling rack until completely cool. Once cool, place one of the cakes on a cake plate.
Recipe Two: (Recipe card is below) Make the whipped cream filling, start by adding the butter and cream cheese to a mixing bowl.
Using a mixer, beat until smooth and creamy.
Add the powdered sugar and vanilla then beat until smooth and creamy.
Add the Cool Whip.
Gently fold the Cool whip into the cream cheese ingredients with a large spoon, cover and refrigerate.
Recipe Three: Make this Hershey’s One Bowl Buttercream Frosting, cover and set aside. For my recipe click HERE.
Put cakes, whipped cream filling and frosting in front of you.
Put a thick layer of the whipped cream on top of the cake on the serving plate. Place the other cake on top of the whipped cream.
Frost the top and sides of the entire cake. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
Slice and serve. Cover leftovers with plastic wrap and refrigerate if you have any!

You had me at Whipped Cream! But the chocolate cake is a nice bonus.
It was very good and fun to make, thank you! ❤️
This looks amazing, Diane. It’s going on my list of things I’m going to eat when I get my new body that no longer has to avoid sugar. 😉 (Philippians 3:21)
It will be worth the wait! Thank you ❤️
That looks so good Diane. Makes me think of a Jos Louis treat! Hope your hand is recovering well.
Wow what a nice compliment Ab, thank you! Yes my hand is getting better, thank you for asking. ❤️
Glad to hear!
Thank you! ❤️
Oh Boy! Send me a piece Please! LOL looks wonderful Diane !
Well I would have but since I am 4 days late responding, it’s all gone. Let me know when you are in the neighborhood and we can sit outside in the cabana and have a piece! ❤️
That would be awesome 😊
Thank you so much for reblogging this recipe.💕
Thank you for reblogging this delicious recipe. ❤️
Oh! This recipe is a keeper.
You can’t beat anything made with Hershey. I love the frosting so much and the cake is moist. Thank you Elaine!
Everyone loves chocolate cake
So true Sheree! Have a great day!
I will and you too Diane
The cake looks like the perfect hit for my sweet tooth.
Oh it sure is, it really took care of mine Bernadette! 😂
This looks absolutely delicious, Diane. Pinning it.
Thank you Carla I’m sure glad it’s gone, I ate a lot of it but gave a piece to anyone that walked in the house. Lol
I wish I lived closer. 😀
Oh me, oh my, Diane. That looks delicious!!

Thank you Mitzy it definitely was delicious.
There is nothing better than a good piece of chocolate cake. Yum!
I agree, thank you so much ❤️
You’re absolutely right Diane … this is a recipe to save! It looks so moist and chocolatey delicious!
Thank you it was still moist 3 days later.
Oh, this looks so good. I love chocolate cake, the way the icing is nice and glossy makes it look really yummy as well…. and of course all that whipped cream!
Thank you Paul the frosting is a Hershey recipe and super easy and delicious. It is the only one I make for cake when I want chocolate frosting. This tasted amazing and I will be making it again.
Thanks for the info. The frosting looks so delicious. Will have to give this a try. 🙂
Mm. I haven’t had breakfast yet but I could easily chow down on something as yummy as this any time of the day or night! 😋
You and me both Nancy. I had to give everyone that walked through my door a piece or I would have eaten the entire cake! Thank you 💕
Yum! I hope you saved me a slice Diane!
I would have but as you see, I am 4 days late with this comment. Oops! Let me know when you are in the area and we can both have a piece with coffee or tea 💕
Om my goodness! This looks amazing!! Can’t wait to make it.
Enjoy it turned out so delicious. Thank you 💕
Wow! I MUST try this one including your homemade chocolate cake! Thanks for sharing although my waistline doesn’t agree!
Try the Hershey one bowl frosting too, this is the only frosting I use on cakes anymore. Let me know what you think, it keeps really well in the refrigerator and never dried out or got stale.
Will do. It won’t be any time real soon between our refrigerator woes and the heat but I will try the cake, filling, and frosting for sure!
What’s not to love about all of this!!
I agree Laurel! I had about a cup of the whipped cream filling leftover so I put it on bagels. 😉
Yummy looking as do those recipes that flitted across the bottom of the screen from prior posts.
Awe you are so kind Linda, thank you! ❤️
Wow. Whipped cream in the center. I didn’t know that could be done.
It is a thick whipped cream so it spread easily and of course has to be kept in the refrigerator. ❤️
Makes sense. 🙂
I really… really want this but I want to eat it not make it. LOL It looks so good!
Once you taste it you won’t regret that you made it😂 Thank you!
A Hostess devils food crème filled cupcake cake-sized. Yum 😋
Yes! I almost made cupcakes instead of cake but was feeling lazy. 😂 Thank you ❤️
I was scrolling thru to see where I left off – I liked and didn’t comment? I thought it reminded me of Suzy Qs for some reason. Lots of occasions for cake – dads, grads. It looks delicious.
You’re right and some call it a Ho Ho cake. It was very good but using the homemade Hershey frosting really topped it off Linda. lol
I’d be in Hog Heaven for sure – interesting they call it a Ho Ho cake and I think it was Hostess Ho Hos, not Suzy Q (wrong shape)! Hersheys makes anything better!
What a delicious way to prepare cake! You always get me salivating, Diane. Haha
What a nice compliment, thank you so much! 💕
You’re most welcome. Always. ❤
Well I have looked at this recipe 4 times and I want it, my fear is I will eat all of it lmao
It keeps very well in the refrigerator. I made sure I made it when the grandkids were here then gave a piece to my daughter when she picked them up. I still ate a ton and it was worth every bite. 🤣
Each one of these photos makes my mouth water!
Thank you! It turned out better than I ever thought.
Wow!! I’m having a surprise party and potluck for my husband’s birthday. I’m going to make this!!!
It keeps really well in the refrigerator so don’t be afraid to make it early. I hope he is surprised and you have a fun birthday party for him.
Oh, great tip about making it early! Thank you! Thanks, so far, he had no idea. We have a pool, so hopefully everyone gets to swim and eat. Potluck with yummy cake!
Thank you for reblogging my recipe.
Wow it really looks heavenly😌
I will definitely make it one day
Thank you so much it was so good.
Your very welcome😋
Can’t wait to try it myself
Thank you for reblogging. 💕
