This is an original and amusing presentation for plain old devil’s food cake. It’s sliced vertically and layered in a bowl with whipped cream. You can even sprinkle on a little dark rum and/or a handful of raspberries along the way. After spreading the outside of the unmoulded cake with whipped cream, you may press chocolate shavings against the cream or crumble any bits of leftover cake and use them instead.
