This is a delicious cake...perfect for a Birthday party! I used recipe #188850 instead of the cake mix. I did have a little trouble with the fudge sauce...followed the directions exactly. But the chocolate didn't seem to completely melt and little specks of chocolate were just not mixing together. The mixture also seemed way too thin, even after completely cooling. So, I put the pan back on the stove, added about 1/4 cup of powdered sugar, and brought it to a boil again. After removing it from the heat, and cooling down a started to thicken up like a nice fudge sauce should. I wonder if next time I should melt the chocolate first, then add it to the milk mixture? Will be making this again for sure...thanks!
