Our taste-testers were impressed by the way Katherine Newman of Cedarburg, Wisconsin dresses up a purchased angel food cake! Her dessert has a chocolate filling between the layers and a lovely raspberry topping.
This creamy, delectable dip is a chocolate lover's dream. You'll want to sample it with a variety of dippers, including strawberries, banana chunks and cake cubes. Jane Shapton of Irvine, California sent the recipe.
You can't miss with this delightful old-fashioned dessert. The cake is moist and chocolaty, and its light, fluffy frosting stirs up in a jiffy. Use vanilla pudding instead of chocolate in the frosting if you wish.
