Cooking Steps:

For the Cake:

For the Nutella Frosting:

Step 7: In a large mixing bowl, beat softened butter until creamy.

Step 8: Add powdered sugar, Nutella, milk, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Beat until smooth and fluffy.

For Assembly:

Step 9: Once the cakes have cooled completely, spread a layer of Nutella Frosting on top of one cake layer.

Step 10: Place the second cake layer on top and frost the entire cake with the remaining Nutella Frosting.

Optional Toppings:

Step 11: Garnish with chopped hazelnuts, chocolate shavings, or a drizzle of Nutella for extra indulgence.
