We didn't use frosting, we used confectioners sugar. That idea was also from the American Girl magazine. Click HERE for a post on how our cake was decorated.
Here's a picture!
Here is the ingredient list, as found in the American Girl magazine. I added the things in parentheses though.
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup baking cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chocolate chips (I recommend using a little more)
6 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup cold water
1/3 cup powered sugar(this is for if you're using the decorating idea found HERE)
To begin, preheat the oven to 350.
Put the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda,salt,and choclate chips into a bowl. Stir until combined.
Add the oil, vinegar, vanilla, and water. Stir until the wet and dry ingredients are combined.
Pour the batter into a greased and floured 9 inch round pan.
Bake the cake for a half an hour, or until done.
Cool in the freezer for about 10 minutes, or as long as needed.
Remove from pan.
