It almost seems hypocritical to make this post after my weight watchers post. But I love this recipe. If you have not tried the cakes from “Nothing Bundt Cakes” you are really missing out on a treat. They are the most amazing, moist cakes I have ever tried. They are also very pricey. I have used these often for gifts but always hated paying that much for a cake. Then I found this recipe and it really tastes almost identical to the real thing. I love this cake. I have used it since for gifts or when I am asked to bring a dessert. It is always such a hit. I love to decorate the top with some flowers and put it in a nice cake box (you can get these at Hobby Lobby or Orsen and Gygi).
1 PKG DEVILS FOOD CAKE MIX
1 PKG INSTANT CHOCOLATE PUDDING

(IT IS REALLY BETTER TO COVER WITH SARAN WRAP, AND LET IT SIT OVERNIGHT IN THE FRIDGE BEFORE FROSTING AND SERVING). IN A MEDIUM BOWL, CREAM TOGETHER THE CREAM CHEESE AND BUTTER UNTIL CREAMY. MIX IN THE VANILLA, THEN GRADUALLY STIR IN THE POWDERED SUGAR ( START WITH 2 CUPS THEN KEEP ADDING MORE UNTIL IT IS NICE AND THICK. FROST ACCORDING TO THE PICTURE.
3-4 CUPS POWDERED SUGAR
