I chose an easy cheat way to make a delicous cake so if you want to make a delicious cake dirtying only a few dishes then read on!

This is what you will need

  • A Golden Cloud chocolate cake mix with frosting
  • 1 Tub of Mascarpone
  • 20 ml Nettari Hazelnut Syrup
  • 1 Hazelnut Chocolate Slab (optional)

Start by reading the instructions of the cake mix then prepare your cake batter, I opted for using 1 pan. After the cake baked and cooled I popped the mascarpone into a mixing bowl and mixed it with the frosting packet that cake in the cake mix box. I mixed in 20ml of Nettari Hazelnut Syrup.

I divided my cake into 2 and sandwiched it together using a third of the frosting. I covered the cake with the rest of the frosting and topped it with a grated hazelnut slab. All I can say is yum!

So there you have it, a really easy and delicious cheat cake.
