How to make it

  • Preheat over to 350F.
  • Mix up the batter according to the directions on the box.
  • Lay out your three pans and lightly coat them with butter or butter spray.
  • Take your bowl and butter the outside, then place it in the center of one of the pans
  • Spoon batter around the bowl to make a ring of batter, then divide the rest of the batter into the other two pans. (I recommend putting the pan with the ring on a cookie sheet so that the bowl won't move around in transit.)
  • The two normal cakes will cook according to the directions for 8-9" pans (abput 30 min), but remember that the ring cake will cook faster, so it should be done in about 20 min.
  • If a toothpick comes out clean, the cake is done, i
  • Let the cakes cool while you make the filling
  • Filling:
  • Mix everything together at medium speed until it is smooth. I recommend mixing the butter and fluff together and then adding the sugar in as it mixes because it will blend easier.
  • Put 2 spoonfsull aside in a ziplock bag (to pipe the swirl on top).
  • Construct the cake
  • Start with one of the full cakes as your first layer.
  • Use a knife to trace around the bowl and lift it out, leaving you with a ring of cake. Then, carefully flip it over on top of the first layer. Now you will have a bowl made out of cake. Fill the hole with the filling and smooth it out.
  • Top it off with the last full cake.
  • Use a knife to trim around the edges to make them smooth.
  • Icing:
  • Heat the cream in a small pan until steaming.
  • Add the chocolate and stir until melted.
  • Remove from the heat, add the butter, and stir until smooth.
  • Let stand for a few minutes before pouring.
  • Pour the chocolate and smooth it out over the cake. Then, let it cool 10-15 minutes to set.
  • Cupcake swirl:
  • Next, take the filling that you reserved and put it in a piping bag if you have one. If you don't, put it in a ziplock bag, make a very tiny cut in the bottom corner and squeeze it down.
  • Make white swirls on top, Hostess style, and let them set for about 10 minutes,
  • Yum yum!
