Instructions

Ferrero Rocher Cake Layers

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line two – 8 inch round pans with foil and spray with non-stick spray, or butter the sides.

  2. Sift flour, cocoa & baking powder. Stir in ground nuts.
  3. Whip eggs on high speed, until frothy, about 3 minutes. Slowly add the sugar and continue whipping until tripled in volume, about 15 minutes.

  4. Carefully fold dry ingredients into the eggs in 3 additions.

  5. Divide the batter evenly between two – 8-inch pans and bake at 350F for about 45 minutes,  or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

  6. Once baked, leave in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely

Make the Frosting for the Ferrero Rocher Cake

  1. Melt chocolate in the microwave, on low heat, in short intervals, stirring between each time. Bring to room temperature.

  2. Whip chocolate, room temperature butter & Nutella until thoroughly combined and fluffy.

Assemble the Ferrero Rocher Cake

  1. Once the cake is cool, split each cake into 2 even layers.
  2. Crush wafers by putting in a ziplock bag, then going over them with a rolling pin or something heavy.
  3. Reserve ¾ cup frosting for decorating.
  4. Place a small dab of frosting onto a serving platter.

  5. Put the 1st cake layer on top and press to adhere.

  6. Top with ¼ of the remaining frosting and spread around evenly. Sprinkle with ⅓ of the crushed wafers.

  7. Repeat above 2 steps with the remaining cake layers.
  8. Cover the cake sides with reserved frosting.

  9. Press the crushed wafers or chopped hazelnuts onto the sides of the cake.

  10. Pipe 8 stars on top of the cake. Place 1 Ferrero Rocher candy on top of each piped star.
