While the cake bakes, let’s make some icing!

Here’s what you’ll need:

Trace cake 13

In your bowl, dump your powdered sugar, butter and cream cheese icing and mix together. (Follow the measurements I posted at the top of this post:)

Then add your cap full of vanilla.

Trace cake 14

Then add your two milks. Mix it all together to the consistency you want. Then take the cakes out of the oven – should have a little rise to them.

Let the cakes cool and then, taking a knife, run it along the sides of the pan…loosing the cake from the edges. Then stack one cake on top of the other, with the chocolate chip sides TOUCHING. You want a nice thick layer of chocolate chips INSIDE the cake. After stacking them, give a gentle “push” on top of the cake to help melt the chips a little more and to join them together. But don’t OVER push.  Then, take your icing and start covering the cake.

Enjoy!
