"Pies, lies, and doughnuts should never have a place at Wellesley College," declared Henry Durant, founder of Wellesley College. Can you imagine such a thing?! It certainly didn’t stop the students from secretly practicing their fudge making skills, which led to the Wellesley Fudge Cake!

This months Cake Slice choice was hard to choose from. I decided to go with the Wellesley Fudge Cake. I needed a frosted layered cake to go with my husbands birthday dinner. Sure glad I picked this one, this cake turned out amazing! Even better the next day after sitting out in the cake keeper. The fudge seemed to seep into the layers making the cake moist and fudgy!

The cake baked up very tender and delicate. I had a heck of a time frosting the cake without crumbs breaking off and sticking to the spatula. If you make this cake, my advice is to be patient and let it sit a day before slicing it, it’s worth the wait!
Each month The Cake Slice Bakers are offered a selection of cakes from the current book we are baking through. This year it is The Perfect Cake from America's Test Kitchen #atkcake. We each choose one cake to bake, and then on the 20th - never before - we all post about our cake on our blogs. There are a few rules that we follow, but the most important ones are to have fun and enjoy baking & eating cakes!
