Ferrero Rocher Cake

I made this cake the other day for my moms birthday and you have to believe me this cake is everything. Since the Valentines day is coming up I thought of sharing this recipe with you because this cake could totally be your Valentines day treat.
I first thought of using chocolate moose for the filling. When I start to bake the cake I realized I got half and half instead of whipping cream. What a terrible mistake. So I made chocolate frosting. I think it doesn’t matter coz this chocolate frosting is divine.

Ok lets bake the cake!!
