  • Whip the heavy cream and once soft peak forms add 2 - 3 tblsp Icing sugar and few drops of vanilla essence and whip further till stiff peaks form.keep aside.
  • Take a serving glass/bowl and place a slice of chocolate cake.Sprinkle little sugar syrup over the cake.Top the cake with whipped cream and add some chocolate sauce followed by finely chopped cherries and nuts.
  • Repeat with another layer of cake and finish with whipped cream layer.If you prefer you can add chocolate shavings on the topmost layer.Since I din't had chocolate,I just added some Chocolate sauce and made marble effect.I decorated it with fresh cherries(This is optional).
  • Refrigerate for atleast 1 or 2 hours before serving.
