Who doesn't have an occasional indulgence with chocolate?
The story here is, we're celebrating birthdays tomorrow (mine, Joe's and Tom's). I asked Joe what kind of cake he wanted for his birthday. He said he wanted a Tunnel of Fudge cake, like his mom used to make. Okay - a tall order, but I was up for the challenge.
After lots of research, emails and phone calls across three time zones, I found that Pillsbury no longer makes the Double Dutch Fudge frosting mix that was in the original recipe (the one that won the Bake-Off). However, Pillsbury was kind enough to come up with a from scratch recipe that they said was as close as you could get to the original.
This morning I set out to bake my cake. This is one HEAVY cake! It is a good thing I only bake like this every so often, we couldn't eat this sort of thing on a daily basis - no matter what Joe says!
