My girlfriend is a HUGE fan of Hoho's, and she and I both thought the filling was a little overbearing. She said (and I agree) that there is a little too much cream. I did what some others recommended and added vanilla and sugar to the cream, but it was still very Crisco-y to the taste, and in fact, it made us both sick. We typically eat pretty healthy, but thought we would splurge for her birthday. Overall, the cake was good, and she agreed with the overall consistency of a Hoho- the cream is not that dominant. It wasn't horrible, but we wouldn't make it again. The recipe could definitely use some work. I'd try something totally different next time. Oh and I did use Pillsbury Devils Food Cake Mix, and that was awesome. As for the chocolate top layer, perfect! So so good. A little weird eating raw egg, though, if you follow the recipe. Eeeek.
