Chocolate Cake Advice Needed!

Finally someone who understands! It's all in good fun; what people don't seem to understand is that cake is unhealthy period. Whether I add all this extra crap or not, eating an entire cake just isnt good for you! haha.

Thank you for the ideas. I will definitely put them to use.

The lecture is this Friday, and me and friends are making the cake on Thursday evening. Stay tuned for pictures!!!

I do want it to taste good though! He has to be able to finish it! Don't worry I'll definately overdo the icing though!

Chocolate Cake Advice Needed!

Hi everyone,

I'm a first time poster and I need some help!

A little background on my situation:

I bet my friend that he couldn't show up to an 8 am class for 3 straight weeks. Since he lost, he needs to eat an entire chocolate layer cake during a three hour dyslipidemia (i.e., high cholesterol) lecture in the front row of the lecture hall. (We're pharmacy students by the way.)

Me and my other buddies are trying to make this cake as calorie dense as humanly possible and unhealthy as well...given the fact that it is, well, a dyslipidemia lecture! He also needs to manage to be able to eat the entire thing, so it has to taste sort of good.

We don't have much time, money, or kitchen skills so were going to rely on a boxed cake. My first questions: can you substitute heavy whipping cream for water in the recipe? Can I substitute butter for the oil? Would folding in chopped bits of candy, such as reeses cups, screw with the baking of the cake? We're already planning on using a TON of icing, and I'm thinking of incorporating a layer of crushed oreo crumbs between the two layers of cake (i.e., from the bottom up: cake, icing oreo crumbs, icing, cake).

Does anyone have any other ideas to make this thing an absolute heart attack waiting to happen?

Thanks in advance!
