Smith Island Cake

Posted in Great Recipes tagged , at 8:43 pm by thealligatorpurse

Here’s a yummy cake, I’m still learning how to make it, but if you’re ever in Smith Island, stop in for a real one…


Chocolate Cake mix + additional Ingredients to make according to the box

Make the cake mix, grease and flour as many 9-inch cake pans as will fit into your oven.  Fill each pan with about 3/4 cup of mix, spread around to the edges of the pan. 


Bake for 8 minutes.  Take out, cool for a few minutes in the pan, then invert onto a cooling rack.  Cool completely.

Make 8 layers.


Icing: My friend Vicki’s Yummy Buttercream

1 pound softened butter

2 cups Crisco

2 tsp. vanilla

2 dashes of salt

6 cups powdered sugar

1/2 cup Milnot


Cream butter and Crisco.  Add vanilla and salt.  Add powdered sugar slowly.  Once it’s all mixed in, add the Milnot and whip for 5 minutes.


Layer the cake, then icing, then crushed Oreos until you’re at the top layer of cake. 


Once it’s all layered, ice completely and decorate however you want. 


 This cake was decorated for our worship director’s birthday.
