Hi Stonewall Kitchen fans! My name is Kimberlee Ho and I am a home baker from NJ, who loves to share approachable baking recipes and tips with busy families like my own on my blog, kickassbaker.com. There’s nothing I love more than inspiring other home bakers to kick ass in the kitchen with mouthwatering recipes!

I have had the pleasure of partnering with Stonewall Kitchen for several months now, showing off their meticulously curated and high quality products in my home baking. These products are the best complement to add to any baking project.

Check out how I took a baking mix and jar of cherries and transformed them into a classy, yet simple homemade dessert showstopper! I hope I can inspire you too to utilize Stonewall Kitchen’s products in new and fun ways.

Dark Chocolate Torte with Bourbon Cherry Whipped Cream

Dark chocolate and cherries make for an ideal flavor pairing. This simple layered cake takes these complementary flavors and makes them sing by using prepared ingredients in a fun, new way!

Easy Two-Layer Chocolate Torte

Made using Stonewall Kitchen’s Dark Chocolate Torte baking mix plus an easy homemade whipped cream filling flavored with Tillen Farms Bourbon Bada Bing Cherries, you’ll be making this cake on repeat for all your upcoming celebrations!

Start by making the batter for our Dark Chocolate Torte baking mix as directed. Instead of making one 8-inch layer of this rich, dense chocolate cake as instructed, divide the batter into two 6-inch round cake pans.

Homemade Whipped Cream with a Delicious, Fun Twist

Once the torte layers are baked and cooled, it’s time to fill them with a super easy homemade bourbon cherry whipped cream!

The whipped cream complements the richness of the chocolate layers by providing added lightness and amazing flavor to this decadent cake.

Tillen Farms Bourbon Bada Bing Cherries juice is added to heavy cream and powdered sugar, then whipped into stiff peaks to create the perfect filling for this cake.

Garnish with Sugar and Bourbon Cherries

To top off this layer cake, dust with powdered sugar (the more the better!) and garnish with more Bourbon Cherries to create an elegant showstopper of a cake for your family and friends! This cake serves 8 and is ideal for helping you celebrate any occasion.
