will any cake mix work for this recipe?
For this recipe, we call for devils food cake mix. Really any chocolate cake mix would taste delicious, with this recipe. Most chocolate cake mixes, require the same ingredients, to make the cake.
In the directions, it explains to add the eggs, oil, and water as directed in the instructions on the cake mix box. However, be sure, (no matter what the box says) to only add 3/4 cup of water.
Add the eggs and oil as directed, but only add 3/4 cup of water to the cake mix, even if the box tells you to add less than that, just add the 3/4 cup of water.
can i add less powdered sugar?
For this recipe, we call for 4 cups of powdered sugar. This may seem like a lot, but there are so many other ingredients in the frosting as well. The frosting also makes quite a bit, because we like our frosting thick.
You could easily add less, and add more, little by little as needed.
If you are looking for a recipe shortcut, you could also used pre-made or canned frosting. We recommend making the homemade frosting, but if you are in a hurry, and don’t have time to make your own frosting, you could easily use pre-made.
You could even use a different flavor, like chocolate, cherry, funfetti, strawberry, german chocolate, etc.
