This elegant, sophisticated looking dessert can become a highlight of any celebration.

A striking chocolate and white tuxedo cake with an artful disarray of grated chocolate on top ups the poshness degree for any party. If you want to come off as fancy tuxedo cale – this is a great chance.

While it does look very dramatic, the cooking process of tuxedo cakes is actually quite simple and you can even use a store bought cake mix for the cake layers. I use cream cheese based filling, it gives a perfect off-white color in contrast with the dark chocolate cakes. If you prefer, you can always use mascarpone as a base.

To make those artful-looking chocolate curls on chocolate tuxedo cake sides, you can use slightly warmed baker’s chocolate and a regular vegetable peeler. Don’t forget to refrigerate them after you’re done. As an alternative kind of decor for this cake, melt chocolate over a boiling water and dip a few large strawberries in. Let cool and put on top of the cake.

Follow these simple instructions to bake this cake and you will be the star of any party.
