Bakery Copycat Chocolate Fudge Cake

Bakery Copycat Chocolate Fudge Cake - tastes just like something you'd get from the bakery! #dessert

I have been meaning to make this recipe for FOREVER. I love bakery cakes. They are a bit pricey though, so a copycat recipe is just the best thing ever. It's a simple recipe - made from a box, but still worth it. Matthew recently turned 7 (my baby isn't a baby anymore!!) - and much like his momma, he loves chocolate cake. I let everyone pick what kind of cake they want and he chose chocolate. He also asked that I decorate it up like Pikachu (I was terrified he'd pick Charizard because he was actually considering it prior to picking Pikachu). My hubby and I and the kids are all Pokefanatics, so I was very excited to make his cake up like Pikachu.


And the end result has me mega proud. I don't think I could ever make a better cake. I went full-on lazy mode and bought premade/colored frosting in the aerosol-type cans with the plastic tips...and went to town with the star tip. The consistency of the canned frosting wasn't the best and it did take me a long while to do, but it was still just awesome looking!

The cake itself - it DOES taste just like a bakery style cake. It was incredibly fluffy and moist. I used my go-to brand: Duncan Hines. And I used my new favorite cake mix: dark chocolate fudge - yummy! I topped it with my tried-and-true vanilla buttercream frosting. It was just the best birthday cake!
