Best White Icing Ever

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2008
A really good recipe. Last time I made it, it was too greasy, so this time round I took the advice from the other reviews and added half shortening and half butter. The only only problem is that the icing is no longer pure white. I forgot that butter in the USA is much much paler than in the UK! It did taste much better than last time though!

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2007
A really fabulous recipe. This cake is soo chocolatey! I had a slice 6 hours ago and still feel it's too soon for another piece! If you are cooking this in the UK, use Self Raising flour. I got confused and used Plain flour! It made the cake really moist and dense, but really rich. The Self Raising flour will had more height and lightness to the cake. Also, next time I will also only use 1/2 cup of cocoa powder in the cake and increase the flour, and only 1 cup in the icing (increase the sugar)
