    Serves 16
    QuantityIngredientAdd
    1 (7-inch) Hy-Vee Bakery 2-tier frosted chocolate cake
    1 c. dark chocolate melting wafers
    Fresh berries, such as strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries, for garnish
    Chocolate curls, for garnish

    Things To Grab

    • Parchment paper
    • Serving plate
    • Microwave-safe bowl
    • Pastry bag or resealable plastic bag
    • Piping tip

    Directions

    1. Cut a piece of parchment paper into a 22 x 4-inch rectangle; place on top of a larger piece of parchment paper on a clean flat work surface. Place Hy-Vee Bakery chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream frosting on a serving plate; set aside. 

    2. Place dark chocolate in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH at 30-second intervals until melted, stirring each time. If desired, transfer chocolate to a pastry bag fitted with a small round piping tip.
