Weekend Dessert

I thought I would share the cake that I made for the weekend. My "best friend" Vicki shared this with me and it is delicious and easy. This cake is on my cooking blog but since I don't post on there anymore, I will be trying to put some of my recipes on this blog. We have a big day today at our church. We are having a ministry fair. I probably will be sharing more about that later. So if you make this cake, enjoy. Warning: You have to love chocolate.

For the Cake: Just use any white cake mix. Easy enough?? Follow directions and make cake layers.

Chocolate Icing:
3 cups sugar
2 or 3 squares of chocolate
3 tbsps. of Crisco
1 Cup Milk- Carnation Big Can
3 Tbsp. of Butter-parkay
1 Tbsp. white corn syrup-Karo
1 tsp. of vanilla
Dash of Salt
Mix all ingredients together and stir constantly until it boils.
Boil for 4-5 minutes stirring constantly. Let cool and spread on cake.
***Make sure you set timer for 5 minutes "only". Do not overcook. It will be hard. I use a pan and after it boils I run cold water in sink and set pan in it. Beat with spoon or mixer until it is hard enough to stay on cake. It must be cool.
