Our featured product in this recipe:

Strawberry & Grand Marnier Spreadable Fruit



3 cups all-purpose flour

2 1/2 cups sugar

1 cup cocoa

1 tablespoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

2 cups buttermilk

4 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 1/2 cups oil



1 cup butter

4 cups icing sugar

3/4 cup cocoa

1/2-3/4 cup cream (until desired consistency is reached) 



1 cup Strawberry & Grand Marnier Spreadable Fruit



Sift together dry ingredients. Mix all wet ingredients together and then add to mixture. Divide the batter evenly into three 8" pans (to create three 8" layers). Bake at 350°F for 30-40 mins or until you insert a toothpick into the cake and it comes out clean. Cut the tops off of the layers to create an even surface. Place the first layer on a cake pan and spread 1/2 cup of Strawberry & Grand Marnier Spreadable Fruit over it. Place the second layer on it and repeat. Once the third layer is placed on top, spread the chocolate icing over the cake until it's covered. Decorate as desired.
