I decided to make a yummy chocolate cake for my sweet husband.
I used the same cake recipe as always. It’s such an easy, delicious, and failproof recipe that there’s no reason to try another (for regular chocolate cake, that is). But this time, I tried a new frosting recipe and it worked! It stayed fluffy and tastes yummy. Though, I’m not really a frosting person in general (except for not-too-sweet buttercreams or something, but I haven’t attempted that yet). So I eat a little bit but mostly leave the rest on the plate.
Anyway, the frosting recipe is:
3 cups of confectioner’s sugar (powdered sugar)
1/2 cup of shortening
little less than 1/2 cup of water
a little bit of vanilla extract (which reminds me, I REALLY need to do an update on that.) Or you can use almond, lemon, or whatever else floats your boat.
Mix it all up together and whip it for a long time, so it’s fluffy. That’s it! I also added some cocoa powder to make it chocolatey.
Happy everything, everyone! I hope you had a fantastic Hanukkah, will have a super Christmas and/or Yule, and everything else you may celebrate or observe.
