I used a recipe from Paula Deen and added my own Christmassy touch. It is easy and elegant.

How to Make Cassata Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine the cheese, confectioners sugar, vanilla and crème de cacao in the bowl of an electric mixer. Beat at medium speed for about 10 minutes; the mixture should be fluffy. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  2. Line the bottom and sides of a 10-inch springform pan with ladyfingers. Pour in one third of the filling; top with ladyfingers.
  3. Repeat layers, using the remaining filling and ladyfingers. Refrigerate overnight.
  4. When ready to serve, beat together the cream and granulated sugar with a handheld mixture until stiff peaks form. Frost the top of the cake with the whipped cream and decorate for your special occasion. I used Christmas decorations.
  5. Remove the ring from the springform pan before serving.
