What You'll Need:

1 (18-1/4-ounce) package chocolate cake mix, batter prepared according to package directions

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/4 cup water

What To Do:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 10-inch Bundt pan with cooking spray.
