As a child my favorite Aunt Virginia was known for this fudge-like rich and moist devil's food. This makes a large cake and goes a long way. Very good frosted with cool whip and instant pudding mixture or any favorite type. Dusted with powdered sugar through a doily lace pattern then adding real whipped cream on top is also very popular. I enjoy this best after storing covered overnight while the next morning the fudgy texture is great without frosting with a cup of coffee. I bake the jumbo muffin size cupcakes split with ice cream on top - better than traditional ice cream sandwiches. ENJOY!

    Mix puddings with milk and fold thawed whipped topping into the pudding. Frost your sheet cake and keep refrigerated including any leftovers. Best if made in advance of serving.
