Devil’s Food & Angel Frosting


Oh Lucifer! If ever there was a battle between good and evil, this ranks among the best. Mr. Devil's Food plays himself, while Angelica - soft and pure as the driven snow, is the holy mountain of goodness, perched atop the dark, evil . . .  ok, enough. I loved them both, and succumbed to their tempations. There are plenty more devils and angels playing around over at Baked Sunday Mornings - along with the recipe!




The boys at Baked have truly came up with a winning combination. The devilish cake was sure to win - a combination of chopped chocolate, dutch cocoa, epsresso and dark brown sugar. Knowing my distaste for white, sticky, gooey frosting - their Angel Frosting appeared - much like a traditional "mountain white frosting" or "7-minute frosting. On her own, a bit too sweet for my tastes, but paired with the dark, devil’s food . . . perfection. Light, marshmallow flavor over a dark, rich and tender cake . . .  heaven help us.

Beautiful piping. I used a similar piping tip but mine turned out more rustic. I'm with you on the 7-minute frosting. Not my favorite, but it worked well with the devil's food.

Such a fantastic picture. Just contemplating the dual nature of this treat inspires me to make it. Will be my first time making this kind of frosting. Wish me luck.
