Welcome to Week #2 of the Homemaker's Month of How To's
If you missed last week on the Homemaker's Handbook then go HERE to catch up.
This week will be dedicated to recipes and other fun cooking goodness!
At the end of the week I'll set up a linky so that we can all share our recipes and meet some new friends. I'm giving you fair warning this week unlike last week :)
So first up this week is our favorite cake of all time.
Some may say this is more of a holiday cake but my family loves mint and we will eat it any day!
Andes Mint & Chocolate Cake
1 devils food cake mix
16 oz. non-dairy whipped topping
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese (softened)
1 pkg. (8 oz.) Andes Crème de Menthe Thin
Follow mixing instructions on the package of your favorite devils food cake mix.
I chopped up a bunch of the mints (Maybe 1/2 to 3/4 of cup) and mixed it into the cake mix.
Bake as directed for two 8 or 9-inch layers. Cool cakes thoroughly before frosting (about 40 minutes).
Meanwhile, with a vegetable peeler shave along side of each mint lengthwise to equal about ½ cup of curls. (It’s common to shave only half the mint before it breaks.) Set aside curls for sprinkling on top of assembled cake. Chop broken pieces and reserve for use in frosting (about 1/3 cup).
In a large mixing bowl with mixer on medium speed, beat the cream cheese until smooth then lower the speed and slowly mix in the non-dairy whipped topping with the cream cheese. Fold the Andes Crème de Menthe pieces into the cream.
Place one cake layer on a serving plate; top with half the frosting and spread evenly.
Place second layer on top and use remaining frosting to top the cake. Sprinkle top with Andes Mint curls. Cover and refrigerate cake if not serving right away.
I made this for my brother in laws 21st birthday! Happy Birthday Jean-Marc :)
I got the recipe from HERE and this is what the cake is supposed to look like but I wanted frosting on all of it :)
