  • Mixing Bowl
  • Waffle Iron


  • 15.25 ounces chocolate cake mix
  • 1 ¼ cups water
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs


  • 1 ½ cups diced strawberries for cream filling
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 4 Tablespoons instant vanilla pudding
  • 4 Tablespoons powdered sugar


  • 3 Tablespoons butter melted
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 Tablespoon cocoa
  • 1 ⅓ cups powdered sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon milk
  • 1.55 ounce Hershey chocolate bar grated for topping
  • 1 ½ cups sliced strawberries for top of cake


  • Mix the cake mix with eggs, vegetable oil and water as directed on the cake mix box. Heat your waffle iron and lightly spray with non stick cooking spray. I used a Belgian Waffle maker. Use 1/2 cup of batter for each waffle. They don't take long to cook. Remove and let cool. This will make 6 full waffles when you use 1/2 cup batter for each waffle.
  • While the waffles are cooling, mix together the whipping cream, pudding mix and powdered sugar and beat until thick. Then add 1 1/2 cups diced strawberries. Divide the whipping cream mixture into two separate bowls.
  • Put a waffle on a plate. Use one bowl of whipped topping mixture for each cake. With one of the bowls top the waffle with 1/3 of the whipping cream, then place another waffle on top, then add whipping cream, add another waffle, then top with the last of the whipping cream.
  • Make the frosting by mixing together butter, vanilla, cocoa, powdered sugar and milk. Beat until well blended. If too runny, add a little more powdered sugar. Or if too thick and a little milk until you get to desired consistency.
  • Carefully spread the frosting over both cakes. Decorate with sliced strawberries and then sprinkle with grated chocolate curls.
