Martha’s Devil’s food CAKE and Betty Crocker Review!

Hey friends! It’s finally Saturday and I am so happy that I got to sleep in. Even though “sleeping in” only consists of sleeping till 7:30 {{{teeheheee}}}.

I woke up super early (kinda cussed at the universe for doing that for a quick second)… then felt all weird about doing that then thanked the UNIVERSE for letting me get all sleepy again. In case you didn’t hear me, “THANK YOU UNIVERSE”… 

Now I am up and wanted to post this lovely cake before my lovely day starts!!!

I found this recipe and thought it would go great with this new product I had to test out!

 Let’g get rolling since we are under a TORNADO watch and my electricity might go out in any second!!!

I am using Martha’s Moist Devil’s Food Cake, you can find it here!!!!

1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter, plus more for pans
3/4 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder, plus more for pans
1/2 cup boiling water
2 1/4 cups sugar
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
3 cups sifted cake flour (not self-rising)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk

click HERE to get the directions. 

I mixed all of my ingredients together as just like Martha did!!! (hehe) I used my Kitchen Aid mixer, check them out HERE.

I got this Betty Crocker gel mix to try and I finally used it! If you want some you can get it from Wal-Mart or you can order it HERE.

You want to squeeze the entire tube into you batter BEFORE you bake it! (epic fail if you don’t)

After you bake your cake let it cool and frost with whatever icing you like. I frosted the whole cake with whip cream and put it in the freezer. SOOO GOOD!!!

I cut up some walnuts and andes mints for my topping!

OH! Here is one of my plants I got for Valentines Day! Figured I would share with you since it is so delicate and pretty!

Serve with ice cream, I used BLUE BELL MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP. Are you drooling yet?

Yes friends, this is what my plate looked like AFTER this tornado got to it, hehe.

I hope you enjoyed this yummy tutorial and you HAVE to try this mint gel flavoring! SO GOOD!

I hope everyone has a great weekend and be safe if you are celebrating Mardi Gras!!!
