Chocolate-Mint Present Cake
Total TimePrep: 1 hour Bake: 25 min. + cooling
I love the look of this cake also! the ribbon candy is very imaginative on top. I bake professionally and I think 15 cups confectioner's sugar with that amount of butter sounds correct. It is a large amount of frosting but I would rather have too much on hand than have to make a second batch. There isn't a description of how to do the cute dots though. I would guess it's more fondant, and silver dragees?
15 cups of powerdered sugar for the frosting has to be a typo...
I have not made the cake yet. The 15 cups of icing sugar seems alot but if you take into consideration that approximately 1 cup of liquid is used and that you are icing 4 layers it probably is not that much. You could cut the recipe in half and make more if necessary.
I agree 15 cups of powdered sugar seems like a lot. A pound is approximately 4 cups, so that is almost 4 pounds, it's going to be a very sweet icing!
I love the look of this cake! I didnt make it but reading the recipe i decided it is for very experienced cooks....and 15 cups of powdered sugar for frosting sort of put me off... very intimidating....
