One of my many memories of Christmas as a child was
the chocolate cake with fudge icing that my mom always made
I don't remember leaving cookies for Santa....we left
him chocolate cake!
and if we were really lucky, mom let us have a slice while it
was still warm from the oven with the sugary fudge icing.
So this year I decided to make one for our family
But I forgot to buy shortening and instead used butter ....
which is not a good substitute in some recipes!
because this cake just fell apart
really.......fell totally apart!
In all of my years of baking I have never had this happen....or at
least I don't remember this happening! haha....
