I have used Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate Cake recipe before for filled cupcakes and it held up fine. The recipe makes 36 cupcakes, I believe. It can be found on the back of the can of Hershey's baking cocoa or on Hershey's website. I have also used boxed Betty Crocker Chocolate Fudge cake for filled cupcakes and that held up fine, too. HTH

Well I used the Hershey's Collector's Cake recipe featured on the home page. It baked up very well, tasted great, however I think it is a bit dry.....just needed a little something else.....anyone know what I could have done to make it moister?

I use the Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate Chocolate Cake the recipe is on the back of the Hershey's cocoa can. I'm not sure if that's the one you're speaking of, but I doubt it since the Perfectly Chocolate Cake is SUPER moist.

Here's a link to the recipe, the frosting that follows is actually pretty awesome too, it's a nice dark chocolate color bc.



Oh, I only get 28 cupcakes out of this recipe.

I use the Hershey's recipe on the back of the cocoa can as well. It's the BEST EVER!

I think I see the difference, the recipe I used calls for butter, not oil.....wondering if I replaced the 3/4C of butter with 1/2C butter and 1/4C oil if that would make the difference. Don't know, but next time will use the more modern version of this recipe.

Raspberry mousse or cherry mousse sound good to me right now (started diet today)!

BTW, despite the fact I was worried about my cupcakes, apparently everyone loved them! Whew!
