Spoon half of the chocolate mixture into pan; spread evenly. Carefully spoon half of the white mixture in small mounds over chocolate mixture. Using a narrow, thin-bladed metal spatula or a table knife, swirl chocolate and white mixtures. Top with the remaining chocolate mixture, spreading evenly; spoon the remaining white mixture in small mounds over chocolate mixture and swirl again. Cover and chill about 6 hours or until set.

To make whipped cream: In a small chilled mixing bowl combine whipping cream, sugar, and unsweetened cocoa powder. Beat mixture with chilled beaters of an electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks  form. Do not overbeat (makes 2 cups). Transfer whipped cream to a pastry bag fitted with a start tip.

Remove cake from pan. Pipe whipped cream along bottom and top of cake. Garnish with sprinkles and maraschino cherries.

    What’s with all the fat free junk? You know fat free dairy has lots of fillers in and less of the blood sugar stabilizing fat, right? And the texture is inferior to regular cream cheese and sour cream. I love your style, Noami, but please consider sticking with “real food” ingredients for the sake of your readers tastebuds and health. :)
