This recipe is from a book called ‘One Mix A Hundred Cakes’. I have never attempted this before so as a bit of a perfectionist I’m not 100% happy with the look of it, but that’s just me being fussy!
Here’s the recipe
I didn’t use chocolate spread for the icing, I found a recipe online. Also, I doubled the quantities of the ingredients to make a bigger cake.
For the chocolate frosting
- 50g Margarine
- 45g Cocoa powder
- 75ml Milk
- 1 tsp Vanilla extract
- 450g Icing sugar
- Beat cocoa and margarine together in a bowl until combined.
- Add the milk and vanilla and beat until smooth.
- Gradually add in the sifted icing sugar until you achieve desired consistency.
* Adjust with milk/icing sugar as desired.
The end result
