unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups
packed brown sugar
cream of tartar
This cake was a little dry..the icing came out nice and fluffy. I can't say I was real keen on the filling. Maybe not as much cocoa and a little bit of red food coloring to go with it's name. I think it would have been better as a 3 layer cake since it made so much icing. All in all my co-workers enjoyed it.
This has got to be the worst cake I've ever made. Didn't change a thing with the recipe, a definite mistake and ended up with a couple sawdust patties. A friend asked for this specific recipe or I would have formulated my own. Do yourself a favor and move away from this cake.
This was really nice the frosting was perfect it looked so pretty!!!!!!!
I only made the icing and it didn't taste that good. Maybe it would have tasted better on the cake that it went with.
