have been searching for a chocolate recipe and am so happy to have found this discussion! can't wait to try it tomorrow. is there any particular chocolate cake mix you recommend? am thinking of doing an "oreo" cake--2 layers of chocolate cake, one white in between. want to do an oreo filling. i'm traveling with this cake to my niece's graduation, need an icing that can take the trip, maybe some heat in the car. thinking about the basic crisco bc. saw an oreo filling...
am trying to break out of the box a little and try something other than yellow or chocolate cakes to decorate with buttercream or bc plus fondant. thought chocolate chip might be a good start. anyone have a good recipe for one that would work well with the icing? because i don't have much regrigeration room i stay away from meringue bc's or fillings that require refrigeration. thanks in advance! ...
