A four layer chocolate cake that’s filled with vanilla custard and topped with a creamy whipped chocolate frosting.
It’s a semi-homemade cake, which means, yes, we used a cake mix. But, it is delicious and if you don’t tell anyone it’s a cake mix, neither will I. 😉
Chocolate Cake Mix: There are two ways you can make your chocolate cake. First, you can follow the instructions on the box of cake mix. Second, follow this recipe for a Doctored Up Cake Mix. I prefer the doctored up version, but, if you don’t have those ingredients on hand, use what is called for on the box.
Whipped Topping: Ex: Cool Whip or a brand equivalent. Need a vegan option? Try TruWhip
Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix: Be sure it’s instant!
Chocolate Frosting: Yes, we are even using a can of frosting with this cake! You will need a full container ( 16 oz), plus about 1/2 of a second container.
A few recipe notes:
- Does my cake have to be 4 layers? No, if you are more comfortable with just two layers, it will still work. However, you may have to adjust your filling and frosting
- Store any leftover filling/frosting in a covered container in the refrigerator.
- Slicing Your Layers: Use a good sharp knife and work slowly. Also, remember…your layers don’t have to be perfect.
A Few Words from The Budding Baker– – Be patient! Go slowly and take your time. Have an adult do the slicing of the cake layers. If you mess anything up, that’s OK! Just do your best. It doesn’t’ matter how it looks, but, how it tastes and this cake tastes really good! 👍
