The Cake Slice: Triple Chocolate Fudge CakeSeptember 20, 2009 at 1:32 am | Posted in cakes & tortes, groups, layer cakes, sweet things, the cake slice | 37 Comments
Oh…Triple Chocolate Fudge Cake…the last cake The Cake Slice Bakers are making as a group from Sky High: Irresistible Triple Layer Cakes. Sad, but just because the group will be moving on to a new book next month, Sky High won’t be gathering dust on the shelf. After thirteen cakes, it has proven to be one of my favorite books, and I want to make just about every other thing in it!
This cake is like a high-class Ding Dong (although when and where I grew up, they were called “King Dons“). If you were raised, as I was, in a house where such ”crème-filled” delicacies were banned, then it will make you very happy. A moist and dark devil’s food-like cake (made with mayo…but don’t be put off, because you’d never know!) is filled with a white chocolate mousse and frosted with chocolate sour cream frosting. A piece of advice…my white chocolate filling seemed a bit too soft to use straight away, so I stashed it, still in its bowl, in the fridge for about half an hour to firm up before using it.
The cake is so rich and good– I think we’re seeing this book off with a bang! Here’s a printable link to the recipe. Better yet, get your hands on a copy of Sky High: Irresistible Triple Layer Cakes by Alicia Huntsman and Peter Wynne…you won’t be sorry. Cruise through the list of The Cake Slice Bakers to check out all of our sky-high cakes this month, and stay tuned for next month’s new book!
