  • Can I use just a basic chocolate cake mix? I can’t find it in stores anywhere

  • Does this have to be refrigerated afterwards?

    Melinda | January 29, 2019 | reply

    • Melinda, since the icing includes perishable dairy products, we’d recommend you keep this cake in the fridge. Hope you enjoy it!
