Bensdorp Cocoa, Chocolate Cherry Cake

Here’s a chocolate cake I made and wanted to share with all of you.

The cake itself is 2 boxes of Duncan Hines Supermoist with added Espresso powder and Nielsen-Massey pure vanilla extract. Also baked into each cake layer are Schawns dark sweet cherries.

The middle and outer frosting is home made Nestle chocolate cocoa butter cream frosting with cream cheese added.

The bottom and top decorative icing is homemade Bendorp Cocoa chocolate butter cream icing.

The top is covered with cherry pie filling.

Overall the cake is over 12 inches tall and weighs over 5lbs.

I am extremely happy with the results.

Money shot to come!

Now that's one huge cake John. Just what I like--rich, moist, lots of chocolate, and BIG.

Think I'll have to try that one for sure.

POINTS!!!
