Chocolate Bavarian Torte

It’s my neighbor’s birthday today, this is the cake I made for her celebration tonight. A three layer chocolate cake with a whipped cream icing with cream cheese, light brown sugar, topped with grated chocolate. It does require to be made ahead of time, as the frosting needs time to set, but it’s easy to make, and so good!
