Peanut Butter Filled Yellow Cake w/ Chocolate Frosting



This cake is for all of you out there who don't have much time to make something, or if you don't have many ingredients. I don't typically use canned icing, but like i said this is an easy-made cake. I had a few icing decorations from my cake decorating class so I put them on top. I made up some variations of this cake, namely the mini chocolate chips, peanut butter filling, and addition of extracts. I didn't try it, but my mom LOVED it. I must say that it does look pretty awesome. :)

Cake: 
Prepare a yellow cake mix by following the directions on the box. Add 1 tsp. of vanilla extract and 1 1/2 tsp. butter extract. Add 1 cup mini chocolate chips. Pour into two floured and greased 8-inch cake pans; cook for 40 min or until toothpick comes out clean.

Filling: 
1 1/2 powdered sugar
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 stick of butter, softened
1 tbsp. of milk

Add all ingredients in mixing bowl and beat using an electric mixer.

Frosting:
Using a can of regular chocolate icing, add 1 tsp. almond extract.
