Another Birthday... Another Cake! A Ho Ho Chocolate Cake with White Filling

Last year for my sons birthday I made him a Ho Ho Cake that was incredibly delicious (and I know 2 readers also made it and let me know how much they loved it!). Well this year I made a similar cake, but used a different filling. I LOVE this filling. Bookmark it. Print it. Copy it down.

It's a fun cake and tastes so much like Hostess snack cake - only more moist!

My schedule was so crazy this week that I used a box mix for the 2 chocolate cakes. Don't feel guilty if you do - they were wonderful!

2 - 8" chocolate cakes, cooked and cooled

White Filling:

1 c Crisco
1 c butter
4 c powdered sugar
4 t vanilla
3/4 c marshmallow creme (in the little glass jars or plastic tubs)

Cream the Crisco and butter. Add the sugar gradually and then the vanilla and marshmallow. Beat well until it looks like whipped cream (up to 7-10 minutes!)

Spoon and spread filling between the layers and microwave a tub of chocolate frosting until it's just warm - not liquid like water, but more like lava from a volcano. You want it to slowly run down the sides of the cake and harden at mid-level, not run all the way down and pool at the bottom!

Chill or freeze and serve!Print Friendly and PDF
