Chocolate vs Vanilla. The handy part is I could make 1 recipe of the frosting and spread it over both cakes. I don’t like a lot of frosting so this was the perfect way to leverage a single recipe over two cakes in the time it takes to only make 1 frosting.
While I have several Texas Fudge Cakes I can play with and am agnostic about (they’re all good), this one for the Texas Vanilla Cake is my favorite of the vanilla ones I’ve tried. In fact, I like it so much that in this instance, to me, Vanilla won the battle of Chocolate vs Vanilla. And believe me, I don’t say that very often.
