I usually start the fudge during the last 5 minutes the cake is baking and pour over the cake the second it comes out. I always use a clear glass Pyrex to watch the fudge seep down the side. There is always a family fight over who gets the end pieces of the cake. They are encased in the peanut butter fudge! YUMMY!
