Triple Chocolate Cake

Triple Chocolate Cake

First off I use Duncan Hines cake mix because this mix rises higher then the others, I also add a box of instant chocolate pudding, and a cup of chocolate chips. The recipe calls for 1 1/4 cups of water, 1/4 cup of vegetable oil, and 3 eggs. Bake at 350* for 40-45 minutes. Grease and flour pan. Add chips after mixing everything together. I use whipped cream instead of frosting. I also micro wave my piece of cake, it makes the chips melt then I add the whipped cream. Its totally yummy! Pam

Fondant using Duncan Hines frosting

Fondant using Duncan Hines frosting

I have seen a couple of questions about fondant made with Duncan Hines frosting. Yes! It IS possible and the fondant's taste is unsurpassed because it is made with DH ready-made frosting, melted white chocolate and a few other ingredients, none of which is adding more powdered sugar, so it's not that sweet. You can actually eat the fondant by itself as a candy, it tastes so good. How often can you say THAT about regular fondant?
