does he like coffee? how about a mocha torte? Chocolate/coffee sponge cake layers with a chocolate buttercream, garnished with chocolate covered coffee beans.
as for cream puffs, well they are good, but not sure why you include those in your description of "cream cakes."

I've made this many times, using Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate for the filling. It's fantastic.
Devil's Food Cake with Fluffy White Frosting at Godiva.com
Another fantastic cake (charlotte) I've made many times:
Here's a great-sounding recipe to check out (haven't tried it yet):
