Chocolate Shadow Cake
Its name invokes the spirit of Halloween, but what could be scary about a rich chocolate butter cake layered with fluffy seven-minute icing and topped with a drippy chocolate glaze?
Why This Recipe Works
This rich chocolate butter cake is layered with fluffy seven-minute icing and topped with a drippy chocolate glaze. We added light corn syrup to the chocolate glaze so that it clung tightly to the cake and had a glossy texture. Using an offset spatula ensured the icing on our Chocolate Shadow Cake spread in an even layer.
