This week’s recipe for Dorie’s Devil’s Food White Out cake was chosen by Stephanie of Confessions of a City Eater. I made this recipe back in September, and while we liked the cake itself, the frosting was not really our favorite. This time I decided to do a mini version and use a tried and true recipe for buttercream frosting. The frosting that Dorie’s recipe calls for is a marshmallow-y consistency, I figured this would be perfect, since I love me some marshmallows! However, I personally thought it lacked flavor, so I knew when this recipe came into rotation I would definitely be changing that component. We preferred this cake with with buttercream frosting…but we also love buttercream, so our opinion on the original frosting may be slightly skewed.
