    HOUSEMANAGER (Charlene)'s Note:

    This is my all-time favorite devils food chocolate cake. Inspired by Anne Byrn the Cake Mix Doctor I have become quite a fan of jazzing up cake mix. I have a host of decadent frostings for all my cakes, but let me entice you here to try this deep rich chocolate cake adorned with freshly squeezed orange cream cheese frosting. You're going to love this super easy cake. This is definitely one of my personal favorites!

    Cake

    Frosting

    Directions:

    1. 1
      PREHEAT oven to 350F; Generously grease two 9 inch round cake pans with solid vegetable shortening, then dust with flour, shake out the excess flour; Set aside.
    2. 2
      COMBINE the cake mix, cocoa powder, buttermilk, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl; Blend with an electric mixer until the batter is thick and smooth; Pour into prepared pans.
    3. 3
      BAKE the cake until it springs back when lightly pressed with your finger, approximately 35 minutes; Cool cakes in pans on wire rack for 30 minutes more and then slip both cakes out of the pans into your freezer; (Frozen cakes are much easier to frost.) Now you can prepare the frosting.

      I think I was expecting the cake to be a richer chocolate flavor. Don't get me wrong, it was good, just not the decadent rich chocolate I was hoping for. I made the frosting as directed and the flavor was excellent, but it was on the thin side so I added more powdered sugar. I kept adding a little at a time trying to get a better consistency. In the end I had added so much powdered sugar that it was very sweet and you didn't taste the orange very much. Once again, it was still good, just not great. Over all, it's a good cake, but it just doesn't have that wow factor I was hoping for.

      The frosting wasn't bad, but our family did not like the taste to much. We did not try the cake though.

      I made this yesterday for my son's birthday. To be totally honest, I liked the icing more than the cake. I followed the recipe exactly but was hoping for more of a rich chocolate cake. It was a good cake....just not a great cake...to my liking. On the other hand, the icing was out of this world ! I was licking the bowl and my fingers......and had trouble sharing with the rest of the family ! Thanks for a great icing recipe....I'll make this one again for sure !
