TWD: Devil's Food White-Out Cake

This was a little slice of heaven! It was so fun to make. I was quite intimidated by the description of making the fluffy frosting but it was easier than I thought. I followed her directions as closely as I could; they're quite detailed including a line "don't be concerned if the mixture looks curdled." It was a lot of fun and I was glad I got to make the cover recipe. My only complaint is that it wasn't bigger! I shared it with some neighbors and family.

The kids were very curious about what I was making so when these popped out of the oven Hailey was quick to make it even prettier. I love the help!

When I got to frosting the cake I had a fun gathering of little people. I handed Jacob a spoonful of frosting to eat and he immediately started wiping it on the 4th cake section yet to be crumbled for the top and saying "I help you?" He is quite the helper!

It was delicious! It's something I will make again because it is so unusual and beautiful. Refrigerating it makes it even better - a little more fudge-like! It's good stuff. If you'd like to make this cake check out Stephanie's website at confessionsofcityeater. Enjoy!
