Triple Chocolate Cake

Every year Jack requests a chocolate chocolate cake for his birthday. This year I decided to try chocolate chocolate chocolate. This is based off the easy chocolate cake mix cake that I make frequently, and it has two different kinds of chocolate frosting. As you can tell from the pictures, I had trouble with the outside frosting sticking to the filling layers on the sides of the cake. If you don't mind a messy sided cake (and I don't) then that is not a problem. If you are looking for something prettier, I recommend you just frost the top with the frosting.


Triple Chocolate Cake
cake
1 box devils food cake
1 small box instant chocolate pudding
1/2 c. water
1/2 c. oil
1 t. vanilla
4 eggs
Mix it all together. Bake in three 9 inch round pans at 350 for 20 minutes or so, until fully cooked. Let cool.
filling
1 small box of instant chocolate pudding
1 c. milk
1 tub of cool whip
Mix the pudding and milk until thick. Fold in the cool whip. Spread between the three cake layers.
frosting
1 stick of butter
1/4 c. milk
1/2 c. cocoa
1 t. vanilla
4 1/2 c. powdered sugar
In a small saucepan mix the butter, milk and vanilla until slightly boiling. Stir frequently to keep from burning. Put the powdered sugar in a large mixing bowl. Add half of the cocoa mixture. Mix. Add the rest. Spread on top of the cake. Keep cake in the refrigerator.
