Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ever chocolate fudge cake The most light moist cake ever. I had spent almost a year trying out recipes for a decent chocolate fudge cake recipe. I use Carnation products and noticed they did recipes on line so gave this one a try and can honestly say this is the best fudge cake I have ever made my family love it, can also recommend their millionaire short bread recipe, caramel kisses and many more, Carnation is now my go to recipe finder

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing cake I discovered this cake recipe as the result of accidentally buying a tin of carnation caramel instead of condensed milk. I found this recipe to use the caramel and now always keep a tin as this is my go to cake for a special occasion. A firm favourite with family and friends it us a lovely moist chocolate cake with seriously tasty chocolate caramel frosting. It is relatively quick and easy to make and for someone who is hopeless at presentation I put white chocolate buttons on the top for a simple but attractive finish. No photo as the cake doesn't last long enough in this house
