1 3/4 cups
1 1/2 cups
4 (1 ounce) squares
unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 1/2 tablespoons
sifted confectioners' sugar
This cake was okay... I think next time, I will double the amount of chocolate, 1 ounce was not enough. The icing was very very good. I left out the raw egg yolk and used 4 tbls of milk instead, to guard against salmonella infection.
Pretty good cake and with a nice presentation. I did not do the shapes of bats/cats nor the 1 sq of choc. Instead while making the frosting, I used 1 orange (dry) Kool-aid packet IPO of the zests. I spread the frosting between the layers and on top, giving the appearance that the orange frosting was "oozing" down the sides of the cake. Then, I purchased those rock hard, edible candies in the shapes of bats, moons, cats, etc..and randomly stuck them to the cake. Nice look, nice taste.
