AMAZING CHOCOLATE CAKE

Are you tired of the same old tasting cake!  
Well I was, until I made this cake!!  

Oh my heck!  It is AMAZING!  
It tasted like I purchased it from a high class bakery! 
The best cake I have ever tasted (or made)! 
I got the recipe from Heather over @ WHIPPERBERRY!  Head on over to her blog and check it out.  She is amazing!  I tweeked the recipe a bit because I couldn't find some of the ingredients Heather used.
Here is my version:
1~ box Devils Food Cake (any Chocolate cake will do)
1~Cup Sour Cream
1~ 3.4 oz Instant Choc. Pudding

1 Cup Chocolate Chips or any kind. 
 (I used Ghirardelli because I love the taste).
Prepare cake as directed on box, and add sour cream, pudding and chocolate chips.  Pour into 2, 9-inch round baking pans.  Bake as directed on box (I added 10 min to the baking time because of the added ingredients).  Place on a wire rack to cool.

Equally Impressive Chocolate Frosting
1 cup butter at room temperature
3 oz. Ghirardelli Milk Chocolate Chips
4-5 cups powered sugar
milk
Melt chocolate chips in double boiler or microwave until smooth.  Cream together butter, chocolate, and 4 cups of powered sugar. Add milk as needed for desired consistency.  Combine until creamy; continue to add powered sugar and milk until it is the consistency and taste that you want.  Place one layer of cake on cake stand and frost the top, then add the second layer and frost the rest of the cake. 
Decorate however you like!
Thank you so much for sharing, Heather!
YOU ROCK!

  2. Can't wait to make this! I'm assuming the pudding is added in the form of the powder mix and not made into pudding first; correct?

  4. Yum! Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner about the chipboard. It's Crate Paper Farmhouse Collection. I got it in my September kit club from Artful Delight. I think she is sold out, but you can email her to see if she has any of the chipboard left! http://artfuldelight.blogspot.com/ Her email is in the contact info! :)
