What is the difference between devils-food cake and a regular chocolate cake mix? Then there is a German chocolate cake mix. Karen P., via e-mail

Heres a quick breakdown of the differences:

A regular chocolate cake mix is flavored with milk chocolate.

A devils-food cake is richer and darker, and has a strong cocoa flavor.

German chocolate usually is a lighter-colored cake with a flavor of mild chocolate.

True German chocolate cake has delicious pecan-coconut frosting, while the devils food usually has a dark fudge frosting.
