Chocolate Cake

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix ingredients from first list together, and let sit for 5 minutes. Sift in other ingredients and mix until smooth. Taste it… yes. Orgasmic, probably because of the straight-up sugar.
  2. Pour evenly into two circular cake pans and bake for about 30 minutes, but check it yourself every few minutes after 20 minutes or so. (while they’re baking, make the frostings)
  3. When they look done, do the tooth-pick test to see if it comes out clean. Let them sit out in the pans for 10 minutes or so, and then naked on a cooling rack for like 5 minutes.


  1. (Make each frosting in their own bowl.) mix all the ingredients together until smooth. Refrigerate until the cakes are ready to be iced. use the marzipan in the middle of the two cakes, then frost the rest with the chocolate frosting. yahoo!
