    Prepare one batch of your favorite chocolate cake recipe, and bake in two 6-inch pans. Let cool.
    Prepare 1/2 batch of your favorite filling (mine is chocolate mousse).
    On your first cake layer, pipe your filling and spread evenly with an offset spatula. Then top with your second cake layer.

    Prepare one batch of your favorite frosting (mine is cream cheese buttercream). Do a quick crumb coat on your cake. This coat of frosting does not need to be perfect, as it will be covered with rosettes.

    Divide the remaining frosting into three portions. Leave the first portion as is (white). Then color the second portion a light purple. Finally color the third portion a dark purple.
