This weekend Isaac wanted to get a taste of baking and decorating. We didn't get to do much decorating because of the cake we chose but it was still worth it. At least for me.
You can use:
1 box of any Chocolate cake. (German, Devil's Food, Swiss, etc)
1 box instant vanilla pudding (just the powder, DON'T make the pudding)
1 1/2 c Milk
2/3 c oil
Bake at 350 until done. About 30 minutes. One of mine took longer than the other by about 5 minutes. Not really sure what was going on but it ended up turning out fine.
For the icing:
8oz cream cheese
1 c powdered sugar
1 c regular sugar
12 oz Cool Whip (NOT lite)
6 crushed Hersey Bars
I tried this with Lite Cool Whip, not to make it healthier, there is no way to make this healthier! But because it was the only kind. Mix together both sugars and the cream cheese. Fold in the Cool Whip and Chocolate. Let this sit in the refrigerator until the cakes cool and you want to ice them.
Finally the cake is better once iced if you let it sit in the fridge for a night.
