TWD: Devils Food White Out Cake


This weeks pick was made by Stephanie of Confessions of a City Eater. This was one good chocolate cake. I was ever better with the Nutella butter cream that I made. That frosting was so good. I don't usually make frosting but this is one that I will be making again and again and again. It was that good.
I made this with Nutella butter cream because my friend wants her wedding cake to be chocolate with a hazelnut butter cream so I wanted to try out different chocolate cake recipes with different hazelnut butter creams. I ended up only making the one batch of butter cream and I think we found a winner! Did I mention how good it was? Anyways back to the cake. It was good and had a nice chocolate flavor. I'll post the recipe for the other chocolate cake that I made and the Nutella butter cream later this week. I think I liked the other cake recipe a little better because it had sour cream in it and it was a little more moist and a little less dense. But both were good cakes in my opinion!

I made my cake into mini cakes. I used my mini spring form pans and came out with 4 fairly tall cakes. I froze two of the cakes for later to see how well they freeze. I'm planning on make the wedding cake in stages so I don't feel so rushed and so I will need to freeze the cakes for at least a few weeks. Hopefully it will come out just as good from the freezer!


Anyways go check out what other bakers have done this week!
