Easy Ho Ho Cake

The Ho Ho Cake is the answer to the question: how can I get more Ho Hos in my life?! Based on the Hostess snack that we all know and love, the cake version is topped with that wonderfully familiar fluffy white frosting and thick chocolate ganache.

In my Ho Ho Cake recipe I advise using a pack of chocolate cake mix to bake a soft and chocolately base but you can of course make your own! Hoho cakes are getting more and more popular as a chocolate cake option and I’m not surprised! It’s rich, sweet, gooey and smothered in chocolate, what’s not to love!
