Ho Ho Cake !!

Taylor and I made this great Ho Ho Cake for Tony for Father's Day.
It was super easy, fast and it's gonna be a great surprise. 

I made this one 3 layers high.
The recipe called for 2 layers,
but that would't do for Father's Day !!

Just look at all that chocolate cake, cream filling and chocolate glaze!
It's gonna be a SWEET Father's Day :)


2 prepared 9-inch round chocolate cakes


2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 cup milk

2/3 cup sugar, divided

2/3 cup shortening

1/3 cup butter, softened

3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Pinch salt


1/4 cup butter, cubed

1/4 cup baking cocoa

3/4 cup confectioners' sugar

2 to 4 tablespoons milk


In a small saucepan, combine flour and milk until smooth; stir in 1/4 cup sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Transfer to a large bowl; cool. Beat in the shortening, butter, vanilla, salt and remaining sugar until smooth. Spread between cake layers.

For glaze, melt butter and cocoa in a small saucepan. Whisk in confectioners' sugar and enough milk to achieve a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over top of cake, allowing some to drape down the sides. Yield: 12-16 servings.
