I made this for our Christmas dinner and it turned out to be great! I ended up only doing two layers because I didn't trust my skills to cut the two cakes in half. The only slight issue I ran into was getting the chocolate to really drip down the sides on its own after pouring on top. But I just spooned some closer to the edges where I felt it was missing and I still got the look I was going for. Cake was dense & delicious; white icing was awesome and my favorite part was the chocolate layer on top that gave it the perfect richness. I will definitely be making this again soon!
This cake is awesome! My family loved it and ask for it. I didn't use a mix, but a scratch recipe. The cream cheese icing is a wonderful topping for the chocolate.
Wow! I am surprised to read some of these negative reviews! This cake was so easy to make and was dee-LISH! I agree that the frosting was a bit sweet, given the amount of powdered sugar, but that can be adjusted. As to the reviewer that had her frosting turn out "tan", if you use clear vanilla instead of traditional brown, your icings will be pure white. Also, I added 4 oz. melted white chocolate to my icing and topped the cake with fresh strawberries to garnish. It was a HIT for my moms 80th birthday! Will definately do this one again!
It was de-licious. When people came to my house, many people said they were also going to make it. Some people asked if it was a show-piece. i said, no. And they were all suprised!!!!!!!!!
I know Kraft wants to use as many of it's products as possible in recipes but the pudding in the cake is NOT necessary so save yourself the $1.00 there. I did not use a box cake mix (I am not a fan) but made a devil's food cake that I've made several times - adding the pudding made no difference so I would leave it out. On the lines of Kraft using it's products I did not care for the cream cheese frosting. This frosting is best on things like carrot or spice cakes. I would have loved a white chocolate frosting (you could even use the Kraft brand Baker's white chocolate to make it). The "ganache-like" topping. This was actually really creative and using Cool Whip instead of Whipping or Heavy Cream actually saves you money. I liked this however cooling for 5 minutes was too long. It did not "pour" as I would have liked. I think 2-3 minutes would have been enough and I would not have had to "help" my topping pour over the sides. Taste - it was good but would have been better wit
I made this gorgeous cake for Christmas dinner. It looked just like the picture. All my guests raved at how delicious it was and beautiful. Thank you for a really great recipe.
Cake was fantastic. Made it twice and then made it again with yellow cake and vanilla pudding
To much powered sugar for the icing recipe. Also, I only needed 1 square of chocolate, and about 1 cup of the whipped topping to make the chocolate top. I had to add milk to the icing to make it even spreadable, it was like playdough before that. This recipe needs expert adjusting, and I hope it gets it soon. Good taste, but as far as following the recipe exactly and getting the cake to look like the picture, not going to happen. Cream cheese icing is a very pale tan, not white like the picture. I have been cooking for 20 some years, and I know what I am doing. THis recipe isn't a good one, esp for a first timer.
Way to sweet for my family! 6 cups of powdered sugar in the frosting is too much! you are better off buying frosting out of a can. i am a chocolate lover and even the cake itself was too sweet for me. I was really looking forward to this one but it went straight in the garbage after tasting it. Don't waste your money
This cake is soooooooooo delicious:)
