My mom used to put Cool Whip in between the layers and just frost the top.

We love Trader Joe's Fleur de Sel Caramel Sauce. Or make your own using the recipe in Classic Caramel Corn.

Raspberry White Chocolate Mousse

Submitted by: Stacey Walery 
This is a light and fluffy mousse with a wonderful raspberry sauce. Great layered like a parfait then frozen. Additional Raspberry sauce can be spooned over cakes or served with mousse.

White Chocolate Mousse? I usually make Sandy's Chocolate Cake with whipped cream filling but have done the white chocolate mousse then serve a raspberry coulis on the side for those that want it. How to... def need to apply mousse and chill before frosting....http://tastykitchen.com/recipes/desserts/chocolate-cake-with-white-chocolate-mousse/

Just a late thought, but Cool Whip means refridgeration, does't it? Just jumping a few yards ahead of what Sassy suggests, but has anyone thought of really clogging their arteries, and using Devonshire (ie clotted) Cream? I mean, its all about "excess" isn't it? Nuts (pecans, or almonds, or good old chopped walnuts) also come to mine, but the kids might decide that they were a bit too "fruity"? Kirsch or cherry brandy, but that might be a little too "adult" in this situation...even coconut, when you look at it...but do have some fun with this!

ONG they sound like amazing suggestions! My personal preference would have been caramel sauce and toasted pecans, or cherries and chocolate ganache; the richer the better!! YES, too adult for teens, you are right!! Thank you guys so much!!

This cream cheese frosting is perfecting for icing pumpkin bread, carrot cake, chocolate cake, and cookies. Plus it uses only four ingredients!

This isn't super sugary like other frostings.

Sort of a modified Brack Forest Cake (w/o the cherries) do it in four layers, so that you can alternate layers of whipped cream (alternatively Devonshire Cream aka "Clotted Cream") and caramel sauce...you could run it by the crowd whether nuts are permissible, or if kirsch or cherry brandy could be incorporated into the body of the cake itself without violent objection...sort of "over the top" recipe design, you need to be carefull with doing half recipes when baking...

Yeah, THAT is my kind of chocolate cake, chairlifter!! Nuts are not allowed (darn those kids!!) Bu tI like your thinking!! Thanks!

Since we both seem doomed to die of coronary issues, I will suggest that instead of using water or milk in your cake batter, you use sour cream instead, (this will give your cake a heavier texture) (Whipping cream will make it lighter and rise higher) Crust the outside with your cherries and flaked nuts, and tell the kids that they can scrape thatpart off, if they are so unsporting as not to try pushing the envelope a bit more...i their late teens or twenties, they are going to be taking their dates out for dinner, and the offering is going to be "Big Boy" food, and they are going to have to strap on the Big Boy pants and stick that food in their mouths with a smile, or look like idiots, and this is easiestly learned at home...

How about marshmallow fluff?. you could then cover the outside with chocolate and graham cracker crumbs for a smores cake.
