I ordered sweet and sour chicken....not chocolate cake with strawberry filling!
Step 2: Make your cake batter...
Step 3: Laddle your batter carefully into your boxes. Start off with about 1/2 C. in each one and then divide the remaining batter as best you can. It's not an exact science...no one will compare who has the bigger cake. They'll all just be stoked to have cake in an adorable take-out box!
Step 4: Carefully wipe any batter that splashed or dripped on the sides or flaps of your boxes. I was super messy. Nothing new.
Step 5: Place your cakepan of take-out cakes in your oven and turn it down to 350 degrees. Time these babies for 15 minutes. Turn, and bake for 10 minutes more. Check them, if a knife or cake tester comes out clean...you're golden. If not, bake them a few minutes longer.
Step 6: Cool completely! I know it's hard. Really, I do. But it's worth it!
Step 7: FILL!!! I used Wilton's bismark filler tip from my cupcake decorating set and piped some organic strawberry preserves into the middle of my cakes...yummy!
Step 8: Frost those puppies! I made a simple chocolate buttercream frosting, but anything would be great--mix it up!
Step 9: Share the delicious, diabetic coma-inducing, adorable love!
These would be great if you made a nice vanilla cake and filled it with a fluffy vanilla buttercream (maybe with a bit of orange zest in it!) The possibilities are endless! Thank goodness I have a ton of these boxes left!
