This stunning strawberry tuxedo cake is a fun and fruity take on my original tuxedo cake and I think you’ll love it! It’s made with tender chocolate and vanilla cake layers, no-bake chocolate cheesecake layers and loads of strawberries. And let’s not forget about the chocolate ganache and caramel sauce! It’s a chocolate strawberry cheesecake cake – what more can you ask for?! I used my ‘Chocolate Ganache Recipe’, my ‘Berry Whipped Cream Frosting’ and my ‘Chocolate Cake Recipe’ to put this towering cake together!

How To Make a Tuxedo Cake

If you’ve never tried Tuxedo Cake, you’re in for a real treat! I love the different flavors and textures of this incredible cake. I made this version with my chocolate cake and my vanilla cake. I used half a recipe of each, or you can follow the simplified recipe I have down below in the instructions. I use these basic cake recipes for almost all of my cakes! Each cake layer is soaked generously with chocolate and caramel sauce, then topped with sliced strawberries.

The cake layers are stacked alternating with a no-bake cheesecake filling. These cheesecake layers are simply heavenly! They are velvety smooth and so fluffy and just melt in your mouth. I garnish this decadent strawberry tuxedo cake with simply chocolate ganache, strawberry whipped cream and more strawberries. You’ll love this cake from the first bite!

How to Make a Tall Cake

Special note: To achieve this tall and stunning cake, I used an 8-inch spring form pan and an acetate cake collar (affiliate link) to add height to my pan. This product usually comes in a bulk roll that you can cut down to size for each cake. If needed, double the roll by taping it together to achieve a taller cake. This recipe can also be make in 9 or 10-inch pans; the cake will be shorter but will still taste great!
