32oz4 pkg cream cheese
2 1/2cuppowdered sugar

In a stand mixer, beat 8 eggs until foamy. Then slowly add the sugar and vanilla while the mixer is still beating.

Meanwhile combine the cream cheese, mascarpone cheese, powdered sugar, and Kahlua in the bowl of your stand mixer. If your mascarpone cheese has a runny consistency, refrigerate this mixture for 40 minutes before adding in the egg product.
In a separate bowl beat the egg product with an electric mixer until it becomes thick and creamy. This should take about 5-7 minutes.
Add the egg product to the cream cheese mixture and mix just to incorporate.
In a small bowl mix together the espresso,
with 3 tbsp Kahlua and 1 tbsp sugar.
Slice each cake in half so you are left with 4 thin slices.
Soak each layer of cake with the espresso and Kahlua mixture.
Then begin layering the cake in this order: 1 layer of soaked cake, 1 1/4 cup cream cheese mixture, and cocoa powder. Repeat this until you stack the last layer of cream. At this point you can decorate the sides and top of the cake with extra cocoa or cream.
