Chocolate Cake

Chocolate cake is something so hmmmmmm……..can’t think of it isn’t it………this cake I made for my hubby’s b’day but now I’m posting this for all my friends all over on this special day.”Happy Friendship Day” to u all……….so this will be a great treat for u all……thanks to all my friends for being with me as a good friend and supporting me and being with me in all my happy and sad moments……..
Actually whenever I make cake with icing I use dreamwhip for it,u would also see that in my all cakes.Because it is easy and no more butter comsuming…….but one of my friend asked me dreamwhip company has any tie up with u……… so I thought I will do a different icing in this but again without dreamwhip I can’t …… I used it for decoration…………

Now we shall have the cake……..

½c Cocoa powder
1½c Powdered sugar
1½tsp Baking powder

¾c Butter room temp
½ c Milk

5.Now add the flour mixture slowly and fold in with a wooden spoon.

12.Now for icing beat the butter and icing sugar well and add the cocoa powder and beat well.
13.Add milk in between to make the spreadable consistency.
14.When it is reached the consistency keep this in the fridge till the cake is cooled.

15. Now for decoration,in a bowl beat dreamwhip powder with cold milk till fluffy and peaks formed.
16.Keep this also in fridge.
17.Now when the cake is cooled take out the chocolate icing mixture and beat lightly with a spoon.
