Red Velvet Ho-Ho Cake

I love the bundt pan-type cakes for making  easy summer (or anytime!) desserts.  Here, I made a red velvet cake batter, baked in a bundt pan. (If you have limited time, just mix up a box of red velvet cake mix according to directions!). As the cake cooled, I mixed up the filling.  To serve it, just slice the cake and put a dollop of filling between the slices!  So easy!

~Red Velvet Cake~
1/2 C Crisco
1 1/2 C sugar
2 eggs
1 oz. red food coloring
1 tsp vanilla
2 TBSP cocoa
1 tsp salt
2 C flour
1 C buttermilk
1 tsp baking soda
1 TBSP vinegar

Directions:  Beat Crisco and sugar.  Add eggs, food coloring and vanilla and beat again.  Add cocoa, salt and flour, alternately with buttermilk to the sugar mixture.  Fold in soda that has been mixed with the vinegar.  Bake at 350 degrees until it tests done in the middle (30-45 min.).  Loosen cake edges and invert the cake onto a cake plate to cool.

1 8 oz. pkg. of cream cheese
1 8 oz. tub of whipped topping
1/3 C confectioner's sugar
Using a hand-held electric mixer, beat until light and fluffy.  Chill.
