Meanwhile, beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until blended. Gradually beat in sugar. Make chocolate curls from 1 oz. each semi-sweet and white chocolates (see tip); refrigerate until ready to use.
4
Cut each cake layer horizontally in half. Stack on plate, spreading 3/4 cup cream cheese frosting between each layer. Spread remaining frosting onto top and side of cake.
5
Microwave COOL WHIP and remaining semi-sweet chocolate in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1-1/2 min., stirring after 1 min.; stir until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended. Cool 5 min. Pour over cake, letting excess drip down side. Garnish with chocolate curls. Keep refrigerated.

Tip 2
Note from the Kraft Kitchens
Thank you. We heard your feedback and retested this recipe. We discovered that cake mix package sizes have been reduced since we developed this recipe. We have updated the recipe to add 1/4 cup milk to the cake batter to improve the consistency of the batter. Thank you for your input.
Tip 3
How to Make Chocolate Curls
Microwave chocolate on HIGH a few seconds to warm it slightly. Draw vegetable peeler slowly over flat bottom of each chocolate piece to form thin curls.
Tip 4
Variation
Garnish this stunning cake with Tuxedo Strawberries instead of the chocolate curls.
