TWD: Devil's Food White-Out Cake

This week's TWD recipe was chosen by Stephanie of Confessions of a City Eater. We made the Devil's Food White-Out Cake, which is on the cover of the book, and the recipe is available at Stephanie's blog.


This cake was fun to make for a couple of reasons - one of which was the marshmallow frosting. Can you believe that never in my life have I made marshmallow frosting??? It took some time, especially when you compare it to making a buttercream frosting, but the results are well worth the extra effort. Light and fluffy and a total complement to the fudgy goodness of the cake.


I had the same problem that many others on the list did - my cakes did not rise very much. Since the recipe says to cut the 2 layers into 4 and use one of them for crumbles on the top, well I was a little concerned. I finally decided to make it a two layer cake and just shave a little off the top for the crumbles.


It really is a spectacular cake, wonderful flavor and with this presentation makes it a great celebration cake. Both Keith and I decided this is definitely one to put in the keeper file.
