Oh my word.
You have got to make this cake.
It's got everything you need rolled right up in one perfect cake, and your family will rave about your baking skills. 🙂
Start off with a chocolate cake mix (substituting the oil for unsweetened applesauce, and adding an extra egg – I forgot to include a picture of the applesauce in the picture!)
Now, beat up the whoopie pie filling. Mix in butter and marshmallow cream until it's nice and fluffy . . . then add in the powdered sugar until combined.
Dump all that whoopie pie filling on the first layer of your cake and spread around evenly.
Top with your second layer and get ready to make the ganache.
Ganache is so easy to make ~ don't let the name fool you (just two ingredients!) Heat up your half and half on the stove and just before it starts to boil, remove it from the heat.
Dump in your chocolate chips and stir gently …
… until they're all completely melted.
Spread that perfect ganache all over the cake, and let your friends share what an amazing cook you are.
You're welcome. 🙂
