I am about to share with you the cake that changed my life. Literally, it did. I must tell you the story. I was living in a new area, roughly 6 years ago, I didn’t know a soul. A lovely sweet gal dropped by my home with this beautiful cake on my birthday. Not only was the cake delicious but it also started a beautiful friendship. And to this day, she is one of my best friends. In return, I like to share this cake and my friendship to continue this tradition. Now I encourage you to step out of your box, make this cake, and meet someone new. You never know you may meet a new friend.
1 Devil’s Food cake mix
1C. Sour Cream
1 pkg. (3.5 oz) Instant chocolate pudding
½ c. Oil
1 1/3c. Water
Combine cake ingredients and mix well. Grease two 8-in. round cake pans. Substitute cocoa for flour so you avoid the white film on your cake. You can also cut out circle rounds with parchment paper for easy removal of cake. Bake cake for 42-43 minutes. Test with a toothpick. Let stand 5 minutes in pan then turn cakes out onto a cooling rack. I prefer to chill the cakes for a little while before proceeding to cut. After cakes have cooled completely cut each cake round in half horizontally making 4 round pieces.
1 pt. HEAVY whipping cream (no exceptions)
1 (8-oz.) block Cream Cheese (full calorie, NO exceptions)
2/3 c. Brown Sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla
½ tsp. Salt
In you mixing bowl whip your whipping cream until very thick. In a separate bowl blend together Cream Cheese, Brown Sugar, Vanilla and Salt. Now fold together the Cream Cheese mixture and the Whipping Cream.
Finally, put the cake together. Lay 1 cake round on a cake stand and frost. Next place another cake round on top of the frosting and repeat process.
