TWD: Devils Food White Out Cake


At last, the coveted cover cake, that has been taunting us all these months has made it to ovens and plates across the blogosphere.  Stephanie from Confessions of a City Eater finally chose this cake for the Tuesdays with Dorie group this week.  I made it for a dinner with our friends Emily and Jeff.  I found the cake part to be very good if a little sweet ( i enjoyed the mini chocolate chips in it).  I am a big fan of chocolate cakes such as this one, made with hot water, which  create a moist moist cake.  However, I am not a fan of italian meringue, which is the frosting for this cake.  Just a little too sweet as a combo.  It makes a pretty cake though, and the idea of putting cake crumbs on the outside is tasty and novel.  Check out Stephanie's blog for the recipe!

I loved the cake crumb part. I think your cake looks great. I won't make this one again...to time consuming.

Glad you enjoyed the cake, even though the frosting was too sweet. It was a lot of fun to make!

Yes, I didn't like the meringue, either, but the cake was delicious! Great job!

That looks darn good, woman.

Hook me up with a slice!

Your cake looks lovely. I enjoyed the cake part, too, and had a hard time not eating all the crumbs before they made it on the cake!

Cake looks great. Very pretty. IT was pretty sweet, but I loved the frosting.

I love sweet things, and once it lost the strange taste it had on the first day, I loved this frosting!
