Ho Ho Cake

1 box German or Swiss chocolate cake mix
Prepare per box directions.

Bake in greased and floured sheet pan 15-20 minutes. (our pan is 15= W 10=
inches W ~1 inch deep) (~ 40cm W 25cm)

White Layer
2 Tbs. Flour
1-1/2 cups Milk
1 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Crisco shortening
1/2 cup Butter (1 stick)

Cook flour and milk on medium heat until thick. Chill - the colder the
better (I usually do the night before and refrigerate overnight). Cream
sugar, Crisco, and butter. Add flour mixture. Beat smooth: 5-10 minutes on
high speed. Spread on cool cake. Cool in refrigerator or freezer.

Chocolate Frosting

1/4 cup Butter (or margarine or Crisco shortening) melted
1/3 cup Cocoa (powder)
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/3 cup Milk
1-1/2 tsp. Vanilla
3-1/3 cups confectioners Sugar (sift if lumpy)

Combine melted Crisco, cocoa and salt; then add milk and vanilla. Mix in
sugar in three parts. Mix until smooth and creamy. (Add more sugar to
thicken or milk to thin, if needed for good spreading consistency.) Spread
over top of cake. Chill. Keep refrigerated!
