How to Make a Tuxedo Cake Recipe

Once done preparing all the ingredients and equipment, let us now start baking!

Step 1: Warm up the Oven

Start by preheating the oven at 350 degrees of Fahrenheit and use a non-stick baking spray to grease the cake pan.

Step 2: Mix the dry ingredients

Mix the dry ingredients

In a bowl, whisk the baking powder, baking soda, flour, cocoa powder, and salt until they are all combined and set them aside.

Step 3: Creating the wet ingredients

Now use the mixer to mix the brown and white sugar, together with eggs for nearly 5 minutes until they are creamy and smooth.

Step 4: Putting the coffee

Add the vegetable oil, brewed coffee, vanilla extract, and buttermilk, and do not stop mixing. Then using a spatula, blend the dry and wet components gradually until there are no lumps seen.

Step 5: Bake the cake

Pour the cake mixture on the 3 pans evenly and oven them for 20 minutes until there is no cake batter adhering to a toothpick when you poke the cake.

Step 6: Let the cake chill and create the chocolate mousse pudding

Once ready, you can now turn off the stove and have it frozen for a quick minute. Now, get the softened cream cheese, dissolved chocolates, icing sugar, chocolate instant pudding, whipping cream and stir them till smooth.

Step 7: Creating the White chocolate mousse filling

Creating the White chocolate mousse filling

Same with the process of step 6, get all the components for this chocolate and use white chocolates; combine them simultaneously until they are velvety and milky.

Step 8: Making the Chocolate Fudge Icing

Making the Chocolate Fudge Icing

In this step, prepare the following ingredients: icing sugar, melted chocolate, milk, unsalted butter, and vanilla extract or vanilla essence. Now blend them as a group with a beater until it starts to get buttery, creamy, and soft—same with step 6, before you can proceed to the next step.

Step 9: Use the Acetate and add the pudding

Use the Acetate and add the pudding

On a neat dry surface, lay the first cake and wrap it with the acetate paper to complete the circle and you can use tape to lock the acetate paper. Now attach the filling above the cake, and using a bent spoon—spread it precisely.

You can now add the next cake on the surface of the chocolate pudding and put the white chocolate.

Step 10: Add the next layer of cake

Add the next layer of cake

Put the last layer of the cake and spread the chocolate fudge icing on top of the last layer. Put the cake in the fridge for about 15 minutes, so that the icing will be set.

Step 11: Smoothing

Once the cake is set, remove the acetate paper carefully and use an icing spatula to smooth evenly the cake.

Step 12: Serving

Serving Tuxedo Cake

When done smoothing, sprinkle cocoa powder on top of the icing then decorate your cake with the designs you like.

Once done decorating, you can now serve it with your family!

Note: Since this cake has too many steps, we require you to read thoroughly before you start baking. You can also add a chocolate glaze, and grated white chocolates as a garnish, but that is optional.

Tips and Tricks

  • If you want to create chocolate curls as a decoration, microwave the chocolates at high temperatures for about 3-5 seconds. So that it will become warm—not melted, then use a vegetable peeler to peel the chocolate, creating thin curls.
  • Instead of whipping cream, you can swap it with white ganache filling to make it fudgy.
  • If you are planning to store the cake for a few hours, make sure to cover the cake securely.
  • For evenly and the best fillings of the cake, make sure you will use a bent spoon for spreading.

Common FAQ

Can I create this recipe ahead of time?

Yes, you can produce the cake layers earlier than the required day and put it in the chiller to freeze.

But the chocolate fillings are hard to create beforehand—therefore you’ll have to refrigerate the contents inside the cake for it to harden. Nonetheless, you may use the room’s temperature to whip the icing and bring it back to its texture.

Is reversing the pattern of the cake, okay?

Certainly! You can double the white chocolate to have white layers or even use your own pattern.

How do you store this type of cake?

If ever you have leftovers, you can set them inside your fridge, covered, not less than for 2 days; this cake should be kept in the fridge since it has fillings.
