    Chocolate Cheat Cake with Mascarpone Hazelnut Frosting

    If you’ve seen my Nettari post you would know that food posts are coming and this is the first foodie post featuring some of the delicious syrups by Nettari, a chocolate cheat cake with mascarpone hazelnut frosting. 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! Chocolate Cheat Cake.

    I’m not calling this n cheat cake because you enjoy it while cheating on your diet. This is a cheat cake because it’s so easy to make because the secret is a box cake. Sjjjjt.

    This is what you will need for the Chocolate Cheat Cake

    • 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.
