  8. I made each cake turned them out and let them cool, then I took my doughnut cutter and made sure it was in the center before I pressed down and cut the cake into three circles.
  9. Decorate with chocolate icing.
  10. First place the big chocolate ring on a plate take your icing and place it around the inside of the ring then place the middle-sized vanilla piece and ice around the center and then place the smallest chocolate piece in the center.
  11. Cover the entire top of the cake and repeat the same process starting with the big vanilla piece, icing, and ending with the smallest vanilla piece in the center. Ice the entire cake and decorate as you wish.
