Devil's Food & Strawberry Marble Bundt Cake (with fast fudge frosting!)

Father's Day was just the other day as we all know and I know that my father-in-law definitely has a sweet tooth.  So for his gift I made him a Devil's Food and Strawberry Marble Bundt Cake with fast fudge frosting.  Marble cakes are just as simple as a regular cake if you've ever made one.  It's really just adding 1/3 of another cake mix. 
What you will need:
For the cake:
Two types of cake mix (I used Devil's Food and strawberry)
Things required to make the cake (Eggs, oil, water, etc.)

For the frosting:
Box of powdered sugar
6 Tablespoons Unsweetened cocoa powder
1 Cup Butter
3 Tablespoons Milk
1 teaspoon Vanilla

Preheat the oven to what is directed on the cake boxes and grease your bundt pan (or whatever pan you may be using). Mix both the cake mixes separately as instructed.  Choose the main cake mix you want and pour that into the cake pan.  Then take the other cake mix and pour about 1/3 of it in the pan.  Take a butter knife and mix it through the cake.  If it you feel you need to add more of the cake mix to get more marble go ahead- just make sure you don't use too much!  Bake as directed and let cool.
While cake is cooling make the delicious and fast fudge frosting!  You will melt one cup of butter in a pot.  When butter is nearly completely melted add 3 tablespoons of milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder and stir. Slowly add in the box of powdered sugar and stir until ingredients are mixed well.  Pour on the cake!  I always save a little for myself. ;)
Your end result should look something like this:

I also took the rest of the strawberry and made a mini strawberry cake for my brother-in-law and added fudge frosting to that as well.  Didn't do the best job icing it but its still taste just as good!

A nice simple cake that will take you no longer than hour.  Enjoy!
