|DING DONG CAKE|
1 German chocolate cake, as directed below
Bake a German chocolate cake according to package directions using a 9 x 12 inch pan. Invert on a cookie sheet and place in freezer to stiffen, so you can cut it in half. Make filling while cake is freezing.
Filling for Ding Dong Cake:
2 tsp. vanilla
Cook flour and milk over low heat, stirring constantly until thickened. Let cool. Beat butter and Crisco until creamy, slowly adding sugar. Beat until fluffy, about 4 minutes. Add cooled flour mixture and beat another 4 minutes. Add vanilla near end of beating. Chill until ready to use. Cut cake in half. Spread filling on bottom half and replace top half.
Glaze or frost using recipes below.
