a vanilla cake that "THINKS" it's chocoalte? lol...will try to search for you..lol

I too saw a PHOTO of the cake, it's served at MURPHY'S STEAKHOUSE in Indianapolis.

It' looks like a very dark chocolate cake with a white creamy filling on the inside, like an OREO cookie gone cake. It also looks like it's coved in a shinny ganache with a ganache rosette on the slice.

I'm sure that you can experiment from there..

Here are some descriptions that I found:


Chocolate Confusion Cake
Combination of Oreo cookies and fudge brownie, topped with chocolate mousse, a layer of chocolate cake with chocolate chips on top, and then covered with rich fudge icing and garnished with chocolate chips and fans.

Chocolate Confusion
Layers of chocolate cookie crust, fudge
brownie,chocolate mousse, chocolate cake,
and chocolate icing, surrounded by
chocolate chips

That's it Risque Cakes , you described it to the T, We attended a dinner and ballroom dancing put on by our insurance company .After dinner I had a slice of cake with a cup of coffee and I loved it ,it was really rich in chocolate and sweet too . The combination of both had us dancing all night .
I have since been trying to find the recipe but have had no luck . Can you help .Thanks

Seems we are all confused looking for it--maybe that's why it is named that?

well you got the combo right there...fire up the ovens and start to experiment. I looked again and it seems that a few restaurants and cafes out in Indiana are the ones serving this cake...!????

Maybe find out who catered the party and/or order a cake from them...deconstruct it...layer by layer and try to copy it or come up with something similar..

Most of the descriptions are saying it's chocolate cake with mousse filling.

OK, now you've made me obsessed with this recipe. (My passion is deconstructing dishes and developing recipes, and I usually do a new chocolate dessert every Christmas.) I just did an extensive internet search, and looked through my 50+ chocolate dessert books, and came up with zilch.

I'm thinking...
oreo crust baked in a springform
then fudge brownie baked in the crust (did the brownie have walnuts?)
add a layer of mousse (was it milk, dark, or white chocolate?)
then a layer of chocolate cake (dense like flourless, or more like devil's food?)
then cover with ganache or more mousse?
garnish with choc chips.

What are your recollections, Railsaw?

I'm almost sure this is a commercial cake available from your foodservice supplier. Diane's or Sweet Street or some similiar company.

Thanks for the picture, Rail. I'm wondering if the mousse is white chocolate. I think there's also some room here for flavoring it with something like Frangelico or Bailey's. I'm going to try this for Christmas dinner.

It may be available , but what fun it's to play food detective and figure it out on our own..
