Giant Ding Dong Cake Recipe
If you are a true lover of the small snack cakes, you will LOVE this version!
Well, I made this cake just yesterday. I just couldn't do the cutting and scooping out the cake. So I spooned the filling into a decorator's bag and pipped the filling into the cake. I made several holes on top of the cake (I had flipped the cake upside down on a cake plate). Please use the tip that is the most narrow, as you do not want big holes at the top of the cake. I must of had about 25 small holes from the nozzle of the bag, placing just enough filling, making the cake rise a tad. I was able to use all the filling into the cake. I then went and let the cake set while I did the frosting. For the frosting, I put more of the chocolate chips in then what I orginally posted the recipe at, most likely about 1/2 cup more. This cake is a must for the frig it seems to be more abundance with flavor when it sets for about 2-3 hours. I hope this helps someone. Try using cupcakes! and dip them in the frosting, let cool on tray. WOWZA Enjoy everyone~~ Cheryl @ the three dog kitchen
This recipe was SO good!!! I tested it out on fiance and kids first, then took it to work after receiving their 5 star rating. The girls at work went crazy!! All are begging for the recipe!! I did not hollow out the cake - instead I did as someone had recommended and made two 9 inch layer cakes and then split them in half to make a torte-like layer cake. It was so pretty and delicious. People are even wanting to PAY me to make this cake for birthdays!!! Can you believe it!! Thanks again for this great recipe...it was fun to construct and tasted fantastic!!

Because giant food is way more fun.
Our Worship Pastor loves ding dongs, so I thought I'd make him a ding dong cake. I found this recipe and boy was it a hit. I've since made 3 and am always asked when I'm making it again. It was simple to make.
I made this for my daughter's first birthday. She and everyone else loved it. Next time I am not going to bother hollowing out the cake and instead I will sandwich the filling between the two layers. This cake is definitely worth the effort!
