A cake to die for!

Many of you had commented on a cake I made awhile back and I just made it again the other day for my sister-in-laws wedding shower, so I thought I'd give you all the recipe. It is very easy and it tastes 100% better than the box cake.


Triple Lay
er Chocolate Mousse Cake

2 cups Sugar
3/4 cup Cocoa
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup oil
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup boiling water

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour 3 (8") baking pans. In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Add milk, oil and vanilla; beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Remove mixer beaters and stir in boiling water by hand. Pour into pans and back at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Completely cool before frosting.

Chocolate Mousse:

1 Envelope Knox Gelatin
2 Tbsp. Cold water
1/4 cup boiling water

In Chilled mixing bowl, blend sugar and cocoa, add whipping cream and vanilla. Beat at medium speed-beat until stiff. Pour in gelatin and beat until blended. Fill and frost layers- Refrigerate at least 1 hour.


There you have it, my famous cake! Yummy!
