    Country Cook in Oklahoma's Note:

    My hubby loves Ding Dongs so when I saw this recipe in a church cookbook I had to try it. He loves it and it isn't complicated to make. The filling can also be used to make Twinkies. This recipe may easily be made in round layer cakes.

      I had a piece of Ding Dong cake for the first time last Friday night at a local diner and it was out of this world fantastic so I wanted a recipe that was as close to it as I could get. This recipe fits the bill. I made it in 2 nine inch round cake pans. I layered it into 4 layers and used the filling between three. I had a little left over and probably could have used more between the layers. The icing was great. I used a little over 3 cups of powdered sugar for the icing and it was perfect. I was EXTREMELY pleased with this recipe and will be sure to pass it along to my friends who had a slice of the cake and RAVED over it. THANK YOU FOR A WONDERFUL RECIPE THAT IS SURE TO WOW EVERYONE WHO TRIES IT!

      Great cake. My family loves ding dongs and this made for a great dessert! I used Devils Food Cake/1948 Version (Devils Food Cake/1948 version) instead of the boxed cake mix and baked in two round cake pans (9inch). Put filling on top of one cake and topped with the other cake. Then frosted. A big hit! Thanks!

      I made this for my son's 21st birthday, and it is sooo good. I used two box mixes for the cake and sliced them up for layers. There was plenty of filling and it is divine; so smooth and creamy! I did add another 1/2 C powdered sugar on the last mix, as I like it sweeter, but I didn't have a recipe like this and I will use this filling all over the place as you can build a lot of different things with it. Thank you very much for posting this : )
