Blackout Chocolate Cake. This recipe features cocoa noir, the darkest cocoa powder available. Try this easy recipe and you'll never go back to your old chocolate cake again. This could be used for a black Halloween cake too.
2 white cake mixes = 8 layers. Bake @350- 15 minutes, 4 at a time fit. It took A LOT of frosting= 5 cubes of butter, 3# sugar, etc. But you really can't get away with less or your layers show through the sides. I decorated with fruit loops around the bottom edge. We cut slices really thin because the cake ends up so tall. Served a lot of people, easily 20. Loved this a lot.
