Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Simplify Not able to make the mocha topping? Simply use frozen (thawed) whipped topping instead. It won’t pack a chocolate punch, but the colour will make an interesting contrast to the cake and candy sprinkles.
  • Tip 2
    Substitution A traditional angel food (tube) cake pan will also work with this recipe; just follow the package directions for the pan selected.
