Best Chocolate Mayo Cake With Cocoa Mayo Frosting

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by lisamariedavidson

Moist, delicious cake and frosting made largely from pantry items. Perfect when you want a great cake and you don't have eggs or butter on hand. Scrumptious! *Miracle whip can be substituted for Mayo in cake recipe, but not for icing.
