If someone would give me a chocolate cake for my birthday, I would definitely be delighted to take a bite at one with a generous chocolate frosting in it. Even your guests would eat the main course fast to take a plunge at your yummy birthday chocolate cake waiting for dessert. Sadly, the chocolaty ones are more expensive. :(
This is the reason why this chocolate cake recipe here is your alternative. Easy but lovely, and ... affordable. And after all your guests had taken a slice because you made a couple trays of chocolate cake, you can still have a big chunk or even a whole cake...all for yourself... Now that would be what I can call a very HAPPY chocolaty birthday. :)
I don't like waiting an hour so I just usually cool the chocolate down a bit and place in the fridge while I bake the cake. :)
This chocolate icing is thick and can be piped on your chocolate cake. If you'll only spread the chocolate on top, you may check out my Buttermilk Chocolate Cake, the chocolate icing there has a thinner consistency which makes it easier to pour and spread plus you can have more volume of icing with the same half block chocolate.
I love this cake recipe a lot because I only have to use one bowl. Most of us love baking but we hate cleaning up after. :)
Frosting the Cake
See the dark and light shade of chocolate in the picture? Yeah, that's what I am talking about. :)
By the way, the piping bag I used here is an improvised piping bag, a sturdy cellophane I can throw out after use. I hate cleaning up after especially piping bags. They have this complicated shape that's really difficult to clean. :) I have blogged about this DIY disposable piping bag made of cellophane in this link here so please check out that tutorial.
If you don't have a cellophane, you may make a piping bag made of wax or parchment paper instead. You may refer to this tutorial here.
Usually, I frost the sides first, but this time, I am not quite sure what to do with the sides. Besides, the icing is just enough, so I prioritized the top part of the chocolate cake. :)
