The Amazing CAKE!

I made this cake for my (almost) mother-in-law's birthday party. She requested it after tasting my first attempt, but I improved upon the recipe and am pretty sure the result was AWESOME (Assuming everybody who ate it was telling the truth about how much they LOVED it).   

: )

  1. 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  2. 1/2 cup white sugar
  3. 1 egg
  4. 1 (18.25 ounce) package Devil’s food cake mix (calls for extra water, eggs, and vegetable oil)
  5. 1 cup sour cream
  6. 1 tsp vanilla

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), or to the temperature recommended on the cake mix package.
  2. Prepare chocolate cake mix according to package directions, plus the sour cream and vanilla; but do not bake. In separate bowl cream together cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg until well blended.
  3. Line cupcake tins (or cake pan) with cupcake papers. Fill 2/3 full with chocolate cake batter. Add 1 teaspoon cream cheese mixture to the center, and top with more cake batter. ****See note below****
  4. Bake according to package directions for cupcakes. Cool and frost with cream cheese frosting (below).

Frosting (I halved this makes A LOT of frosting if you don’t):
2, 8-oz packages of cream cheese
1/2 cup butter
3 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Cream together butter and cream cheese
mix in vanilla
gradually add sugar
****Note: For the cake I made on sunday, I used part of the cream cheese frosting for one layer of filling, topped it with cake batter, added a chocolate cream cheese frosting layer (made by adding cocoa powder to taste), topped by the remaining cake batter.
