Chocolate Strawberry Mascarpone Cake
- 1 box chocolate cake mix
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 8 oz. mascarpone cheese, room temperature
- 1 cup white frosting
- Red food coloring
- 1 can chocolate frosting
- 1 pint fresh strawberries
- 2 drops strawberry flavor extract or oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Make cake mix according to directions. Bake in greased and floured bundt pan. Cook cake then slice horizontally, making a total of 4 pieces (for 3 layers). For filling, in mixing bowl whip heavy cream until peaks form. Add mascarpone cheese and white frosting, mix well but do not overbeat. Add red food coloring until desired color is achieved. Place bottom slice of cake onto a waxed paper-lined serving platter; frost with mascarpone mixture. Repeat layers. Add strawberry flavor to chocolate frosting, mix well. Frost sides of cake with chocolate frosting, sealing cut edges. Microwave leftover frosting to drizzle over top of cake. (Add drops of milk to loosen, if needed.) Remove wax paper; chill. Before serving add strawberries to center of cake.
