  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
  2. In a bowl, pour in the Chocolate cake mix, vegetable oil and milk and mix until combined. Repeat this for all three cakes.
  3. Pour each cake batter into three separate cake tins and place in the oven for 25-30 minutes.
  4. Whilst they are baking, drain the cherries and save the juice. Chop each cherry in halves and quarters. In a saucepan, heat the corn flour and some of the cherry juice until it forms a paste. Then add the rest of the juice until it thickens and then pour into the cherries. Let these cool in the fridge until firm.
  5. Whip up the dairy free double cream until it turns into whipped cream.
  6. Once the cakes are cool, spread over the whipped cream then layer the cherries on top. Repeat this with each layer.
  7. On the top of the cake, spread over the chocolate spread and sprinkle over the shaved white chocolate and decorate with cherries.
  8. Enjoy!
