Eggless Ferrero Rocher Ice Cream Cake


We celebrated our second Wedding Anniversary on December 1st. I am always looking for ways to better myself and go a little bigger than the previous year. What is a day like this without chocolate, right? 😉 Luckily, I was able to catch a break from work and make this AMAZING Ferrero Rocher Ice Cream Cake. And whats better? Its eggless!

If you love chocolate and nutella, you will love this cake. This cake is made of delicious moist layers of chocolate cake, filled with nutella ice cream, topped with dark chocolate ganache and of course Ferrero Rochers. I swooned a little just typing that out here!

Assemble one layer of the cake on a plate. Place a baking circular mold that is wider than the cake on the plate. Fill a piping bag with the nutella ice cream and pipe around the mold and fill the cake layer. Place the second cake layer on top and repeat process. Allow the cake to set in the fridge for at least 2-3 hours.
