Monster Rock Cakes

I had a few requests for the recipe for these yummy cakes so here it is! Monster Rock Cakes… aka, chocolate wafer cake… aka, old fashioned Nabisco’s Famous Chocolate Refrigerator Roll.  I just switched it up to make them into mini cakes, with a lot of color!

wafer cake


2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1 package (9oz.) FAMOUS Chocolate Wafers
Wilton gel coloring (or any gel coloring)


STIR together cream, vanilla, and coloring. Keep adding coloring until you get the color you want, just remember the hue will be a little darker after beating the cream.

BEAT mixture with mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form.

SPREAD 1-1/2 tsp. whipped cream onto each wafer; stack


I layered each mini cake 6 wafers high, spread the whipped cream onto each wafer and then frosted the outside with the opposite color. Placed on a cupcake wrapper and refrigerated until the party!

To get these colors I used a leaf green and royal blue.  I wanted super bright colors so I used a lot of gel! Just make sure you don’t use regular food coloring with this cake… the reason you need gel (or powder coloring) is because a regular food coloring will flatten the whipping cream. Also, be sure you add the coloring before beating the mix.
