      For chocolate fudge frosting try this recipe………………….5 oz butter 5 ozicing sugar, 5tbsp coco powder, 5tbsp milk,now you have to make this on low heat. First melt the butter in pan, add coco and increase the heat little and mix it and then add sugar and mix it well. add milk and keep stirring it till its thick and glossy, cool it and use it on ur cake. it will never run down.

          Cracks, bubbles and uneven surfaces may be caused by too much flour, too hot an oven, and sometimes from cold oven. so try to avoid these things rabia.

    Your recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar syrup… what ratio of sugar to water are you using.. is it a “simple syrup recipe, a medium syrup OR heavy syrup blend”?

    • Neel August 2, 2018, 10:28 am

      it’s simple sugar syrup which I use for all cakes. its basic ratio is 1:1. one cup sugar one cup water
