Suzi Q Cake
This cake has been a favorite around our house for many years.
My middle son would request it each year for his birthday cake and it is always a hit when I take it to potlucks and get togethers.
The photo above is when I made it for Big Al for Valentine's Day, so I had made it in my heart shaped pans, but any way you choose to serve it will be the right way as it is delicious ! It is also a semi homemade cake as it starts with a cake mix.
YOU WILL NEED:
Your favorite brand chocolate, fudge or devil's food cake mix, baked according to package directions. (Either bake it in 2 pans, or bake in one pan, then separate into two layers after it cools.)
1 (8 oz.) pkg. softened cream cheese
1 10 oz. Cool Whip
2 cups powdered sugar
Mix till smooth.
*This is one of THE BEST TASTING FILLINGS that can be used in many recipes and we also use it as a delicious fruit dip. You gotta' try it!
Spread filling between layers and also on top of the top layer.
Then around sides only, spread a small can of MILK chocolate frosting (or your favorite homemade recipe).
Serve immediately and refrigerate leftovers. It is great cold too...for breakfast!
