Chocolate-Mint Whipped Cream Cake Recipe
Lynette Granade, of Mobile, Alabama, won grand prize in a local cooking contest with this Chocolate-Mint Whipped Cream Cake. To make curls, you’ll need to buy both vanilla- and chocolate-flavored candy coating, available in squares, wafers, or morsels. When we published this recipe in November of 1990, we suggested that you use a green-paste food coloring to tint the vanilla-flavored coating pale green. Some bakers today prefer not to use food coloring, so feel free to leave this out, if you wish. It will not change the delicious taste or beautiful appearance of the cake. You can make the curls a day or two ahead of time, and store them in a cool, dry place. For longer storage, freeze up to three months.
