Make It
Step 1
Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease and flour two 8-inch-round baking pans.
Step 2
Combine flour, 1 1/2 cups sugar and cocoa in large mixer bowl. Stir in mayonnaise and vanilla extract; beat for 2 minutes. Combine warm water and baking soda in small bowl. Add to cocoa mixture slowly while beating until well blended. Pour batter into prepared pans.
Step 3
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in centers come out clean. Cool in pans for 15 minutes; invert onto wire racks to cool completely.
Step 4
Bring cream, butter and remaining 3 tablespoons sugar to a simmer in medium, heavy-duty saucepan, stirring until butter melts. Remove from heat. Add morsels; let sit for 2 minutes. Whisk until smooth. Whisk in vanilla extract. Pour into medium bowl. Refrigerate for about 1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally, until frosting is thick enough to spread. Frost cake with frosting.
