To make frosting:

In a stand mixer on high speed, whisk heavy whipping cream for about 3-5 minutes(be careful not to over whisk it or else it will turn into butter). Place into another bowl, and refrigerate.

Add cream cheese to the same bowl where you whisked heavy whipping cream (no need to wash the bowl) and beat cream cheese until fluffy texture Make sure to stop few times, and scrap cream cheese down so there will be no chucks of cheese in your cream.  I used local plain cream cheese from Willapa Hills Cheese Family Farm and Creamery, it was softer than regular cheese and didn’t need whisking.

Add sugar and whisk until combined.

To assemble Chocolate Cake:

Place 1st cake layer on a long serving plate and using food brush, evenly brush sugar syrup over the top.  Spread chocolate. This step is %100 optional: After spreading chocolate place your cake layer into a fridge and let the chocolate turn hard that way it will be easier to add frosting on top.
