Warning: Don't Look If You're Fasting


I made this cake on a whim last night. We had some after suhoor and even though I frosted it too soon while it was still a bit warm, it was delicious! I used my foolproof yellow cake recipe, and made some chocolate frosting and decorated with pistachios. We still have half for after iftar!

  14. mona can u please post the recipe for the frosting for this cake?

    also this might be a dumb question, but what do u use for chocolate cakes for cocoa? the hershey cocoa or is there any other thing available in egypt?

  15. Umm BudiMary, Are you in Egypt? On this cake I used a mix of Dreem whip (you know the stuff?) and cocoa and confectioners sugar. Sometimes I'll make butter cream frosting though with butter etc, any recipe online that has a lot of ratings. Food.com or Allrecipes.com. Yes I get Hershey's cocoa or Hintz which is also really good. Good luck:)
