Did someone say chocolate? I made a most scrumptious cake for my birthday with help from Cisse Trading Co. They provided their gourmet Dark Chocolate Layer Cake Mix which I could not wait to make.
The elegant packaging is the first glimpse to expect something great inside. As I opened the mix, I could smell the rich delectable cocoa aroma. As it was mixed, with just 3 ingredients, milk, eggs and canola oil, the deep dark chocolate color was shining decadently! One box makes two 8″ round layers – but I did not have round pans so I made mine square. There was plenty of batter for the two layers. While baking, the cocoa aroma filled my kitchen. It did take significantly longer in my oven than the package recommended. It states 20 minutes OR until the toothpick test comes out clean. My baking time was near 32 minutes to get to that stage. It was worth the wait. Hurry up and cool so I can frost you cake!
Frosted and completed, fork in hand, the first bite assured me the quality I was viewing during the making process held true. The cake is moist, rich and full of deep dark cocoa flavors. This is the box mix that is One 2 Try!
What makes Cisse Trading Co. mix so special is the special care of the cocoa! The mixes are lovingly made with organic Fair Trade cocoa powder which is hand selected in the Dominican Republic. You can see where the cocoa comes directly from the bean to the box in an informative interactive journey. Starting with the Fundopo Cooperative of organic farmers, each step is detailed of the cocoa trip into Cisse Trading Co. mixes. The beans are processed into the fine powder in Belgium, a country known for chocolate. The cocoa finishes its journey in New York where it is packaged into Cisse Trading Co Mixes. From Bean to Box – the process maintains the organic high quality product ready for you to make!
