I saw this at the grocery store and I was intrigued. Of course I quickly decided on the Chocolate Trifecta cake mix. I’ve had a love affair with Carlo’s Bakery since my visit in June 2012. I’m dying to go back.
With high hopes, I made the cake, and decided to add my Ganache- because you can never have enough chocolate. Am I right?
I was pleasantly surprised with how easy it was just a few steps- and the batter was rich with the addition of a chocolate custard. It baked up perfectly and was light and fluffy.
I used the frosting, in the middle of the 9″ layers and on top, and made sure there was Ganache both in the middle and on top as well. It was a great cake! In fact, we ate it all in 1 day. Rich, moist, and lots of chocolate. Dare I say that it tasted homemade? And over the years, I’ve made a ton of cakes with a cake mix. But a Carlo’s Bakery cake in your own home, is something I’m very exited about. I will be trying the other flavors soon. And with a price point around $3.49, I’d say it’s worth it for a great boxed cake mix.
