Prepare Baker’s Request™ Dark Devil’s Food Cake Mix according to bag directions. Deposit 1 pound 8oz into 9” baking pans prepared with pan spray. Bake at 350°F for 20-30 minutes or until cake springs back lightly when touched. Let cool completely, depan and chill in cooler overnight. Heat Classic Chocolate Fudge Icing in the microwave at 15 second intervals until warm. Pour icing over chilled rounds. Garnish with sesame brittle.
Line a full size sheet tray with a non-stick liner and mist with pan spray. In a non-reactive pan, mix together 15oz granulated sugar, 12oz corn syrup, and 4oz water, stirring until well combined. Place the pan on the heat and cook without stirring until mixture starts to color light brown, add in 6oz sesame seeds and cook again (stirring this time) until mixture again begins to color. Add in all at once 1oz butter, 0.25oz baking soda, 0.10oz kosher salt, and 0.40oz vanilla extract. Mixture will climb the sides of the pan. Continue stirring until butter is melted and all ingredients have been mixed in. Carefully pour onto prepared sheet tray and spray an offset spatula with pan spray, gently spread the brittle into a thin later with treated offset spatula. Let cool completely, crack into shards, and store in a sealed container.
