The Ultimate Devil's Food Cake with Cream Filling and Fudgy Frosting
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping
Makes a triple layer nine inch cake
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour 3 - 9 inch cake pans.
Mix cocoa and boiling water, stir until smooth, set aside to cool.
Sift dry ingredients together, set aside.
In a large bowl beat butter sugar, eggs and vanilla together. Alternately beat in the dry ingredients and the chocolate mixture. Beat just until blended, do not overmix. Pour batter into the three greased pans and bake for abour 30 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean. Remove cakes from oven and allow them to set for 3-5 minutes. Remove from pans and cool completely on a wire rack before frosting.
Prepare filling by beating together cream, confectioner's sugar and vanilla until stiff. Set aside
Before you put the cake together, make sure that everything has completely cooled. Divide the filling in two and spread it between the layers. Frost sides and top with the choclate icing. Don't worry if some of the filling oozes out the sides while you are frosting them, just mix it into the frosting.
