Ingredients:  
Solid Vegetable Shortening for greasing the pans
Flour for dusting the pans
1 pkg. Plain Devil's Food Cake Mix
3 TBSP. Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 1/3 Cup Buttermilk
1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil
3 Large Eggs
1 tsp. Pure Vanilla Extract
White Chocolate Frosting
6 oz. White Chocolate, Coarsley chopped

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. Generoualy grease two 9-inch round cake pans with solid vegetable shortening, then dust with flour. Shake out the excess flour. Set the pans aside.
Place the cake mix, cocoa powder, buttermilk, oil, eggs, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Blend with an electric mixer on low speed for 1 minute. Stop the machine and scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Increase the mixer speed to medium and beat 2 minutes more, scraping down sides again if needed. The batter should look well blended. Divide the batter between the prepared pans, smoothing it out with the rubber spatula. Place the pans in the oven side by side. Bake the cakes until they spring back when lightly pressed with your fingers and just start to pull away from the sides of the pan, 28 to 30 minutes. Remove the pans from the oven and place them on wire racks to cool for 10 minutes. Run a dinner knife around the edge of each layer and invert each onto a rack, then invert them again onto another rack so that the cakes are right side up. Cool completely, 30 minutes.
Meanwhile prepare the White Chocolate Frosting.
Place one cake layer, right side up, on a serving platter. Spread the top with frosting. Place the second layer, right side up, on top of the first layer and frost the top and sides of the cake with clean smooth strokes.
Frosting:
Place the white chocolate in a small saucepan and melt over low heat, 4 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove the pan from the heat and let the chocolate cool. Place the cream cheese and butter in a large mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until well combined, 30 seconds. Add the vanilla and powdered sugar and blend on low speed for 30 seconds more. Increase the mixer speed to medium and beat until frosting is fluffy, 1 minute more.
