A Taste for Giving ...... Eggless Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Frosting

Our team organized a very successful lunch for charity on the 1st of October. It was aptly named "A Taste for Giving" ..... In addition to the lunch we also held a bake sale where we sold delicious cakes and cookies. The sale was a big success and everything was gone within half an hour! There were several delicious goods lovingly baked and generously donated to us by some amazing cooks. One of those recipes was "Chocolate Cupcakes with Frosting". My colleague and fellow baker will blog with her recipe for these delectable cupcakes soon.

Baking this cake was very easy but the frosting was a bit tricky. I wanted more than butter, sugar and cocoa in my frosting so I added some melted unsweetend chocolate. It also help to cut the extra sweetness of the icing sugar. I also added a couple of tablespoons of corn syrup - this helps to give that extra shine to frosting. At one point of time, I thought I had ruined it but it just needed a splash of milk and a few extra seconds in the mixer and it turned out to be smooth and chocolatey. The consistency was just right to spread it on the cake and even do some decorations.

To frost layer cakes, the first thing that needs to be done is leveling of the cake rounds. Use a long, serrated knife or a very strong string, like fishing/kite string to make the cake rounds level. To make a cake with 4 layers, further slice each round cake into 2 halves horizontally.

Place the first layer on the tray where you want to frost the cake. There are 2 tips here that are usually helpful:
  1. Place some strips of parchment along the circumference of the plate/stand that you are using to ice the cake. Once the frosting is done, these can be pulled out to leave the base looking very neat.  
  2. Place the parchment side of the cake on top - when frosting is spread on this side, crumbs do not stick to or mix with the layer of frosting.

Proceed to apply frosting on one layer. Smooth it so that it becomes an even layer.

Place the second layer of cake on top and spread the frosting evenly.

You may use your favorite recipe of chocolate cake for this and dont have to be restricted to eggless cakes. For the recipe of the cake I used, please refer here.

The team with their hands full of the everyday work they do had to put together a lot of extra effort to make our event such a success and I kept thinking of a good way to say thank you to them. And to be honest, for me the best way of giving thanks is to make something that I know they will like. Since it was Navratri time, I had to make an eggless cake. So I went back to my recipe for Chocolate Oil Cake from Allrecipes that I had used previously to make this cake. I did search a bit to get a frosting recipe. I had to make some tweaks to this recipe from allrecipes that I used but I was very happy with the end result. This blog entry is also an attempt to show how to frost a cake at home... Jyotsna
