Recipe for Chocolate Snowball Cake. This cake reminds me of a sophisticated version of those pink chocolate snowball snack cakes most of us ate as kids.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 recipe 7 Minute Icing (follow link for recipe)
  • 1 1/3 cups shredded coconut, tinted pink (follow link for directions)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F and grease and flour two 8\" - 9\" round or heart shaped cake pans.
  2. Mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Make a well in center of dry ingredients, add remaining ingredients and mix at low speed until completely moistened. Increase speed and beat at high speed for about 3 minutes. Divide batter between the pans and bake for about 30 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks for about 5 minutes, before inverting onto wire racks to cool completely.
  3. After cakes have cooled, frost with 7 Layer Icing, and press tinted coconut on top and sides.
  4. Hint: To keep the cake plate clean while applying the icing and coconut, overlap to pieces of waxed paper, by about a third, in the center of the cake plate. frost cake and apply coconut, then gently pull out the two pieces of paper and you have a finished cake and a clean cake plate!
