Chocolate Chiffon Cake With Mocha Filling



Chocolate Chiffon cake with Mocha filling and frosting made for my husband’s birthday…

Last month, my Man turned another year younger and wiser, to celebrate that I made this cake. Every birthday, I bake a special cake for him and he indulges in it with so much happiness and with a wide smile on his face. Well, his smile and happiness have been my inspiration to cook and bake.

I’m not a huge fan of chocolate cakes, since my Man likes it, this time I made a chocolate chiffon cake and frosted it with mocha rose swirls. I loved the taste of the Mocha filling and it made this cake taste delicious.
