5. Remove from the pans and cool completely.

6. In a small bowl, beat the 1 3/4 cups whipping cream until soft peaks form. Blend in the confectioners' sugar and vanilla extract. Beat until stiff peaks form.

7. To assemble the cake, place one layer on a serving plate, praline side up.

8. Spread with half of the whipped cream. Top with the second layer. Frost with the remaining whipped cream.. Store in refrigerator.
