Large chocolate cake with cream in the middle

lindi4, May 4, 5:34am
Ive just made 2 chocolate cakes separately in a roasting dish and doubled the recipe each time so about 3cups flour per cake. I want to have whipped cream in the middle but Im thinking the weight of the cake might be too heavy for cream whipped thick with icing sugar. Idont want it to squish out the sides.wonder if it will!

split the two cakes and have 4 layers

Or spread the middle with jam and a thick layer of chocolate butter icing. That's what I do- and ice the cake with the same chocolate butter icing.

Are there different types of cream for whipping besides the ordinary stuff !

lindi4, May 4, 6:29am
Or types of sugar instead of icing sugar to make the whipped cream firmer. Im hell bent on whipped cream for a filling.I just want it firm

double cream! but i don't know that it wont overflow because of the weight either.

What about fruit in with the cream to hold the weight of the cake!
