Chocolate Cake and Creamy Chocolate Frosting

This will make you a chocolate-y cake with some creamy and smooth icing. A note on the icing. XXXX sugar is now known as confectioners sugar or icing sugar. It is sugar crushed superfine with about 3% cornstarch to prevent clumping. Secondly, this icing isn’t cooked, so beware of the fact that you are using raw egg in it. If I were to make this icing I’d probably leave out the egg altogether.

4 eggs

1 1/2 cups flour

  1. The egg white probably would add quite a lot of volume. The icing might be rather “flat” if left out. I would recommend using Pillsbury already made cream cheese icing. YUM
