    LonghornMama's Note:

    Saw this online at raspberricupcakes.com and made for my son's birthday. Absolutely fantastic! Be sure to check out her beautiful pictures of the finished cake. The chocolate cake recipe is the Devil's Food cake from David Lebovitz. The frosting tastes just like mint chocolate chip ice cream! Instead of cake flour, I subbed all-purpose flour and replaced 3T with cornstarch which worked well. The original recipe suggests chopping chocolate in a food processor. I do not recommend this, it's too hard to chop uniformly. I used 150 g Ghiradelli double chocolate bittersweet chocolate chips, which is slightly less than 1 cup. Regular semisweet chocolate chips would work just fine. This is not a difficult cake to make or decorate.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Cake

    Frosting

    • 1 1/2 cups butter
    • 4 cups powdered sugar, sifted
    • 3 teaspoons peppermint extract (start with 2 t and adjust to taste)
    • 150 g dark chocolate or 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, very finely chopped by hand
    • green food coloring
    • sugar ice cream cone (optional)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and line the base of two 9-inch cake pans with waxed paper.
    2. 2
      Sift together the cocoa, flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar about 5 minutes until smooth and creamy. Add the eggs, one at a time, and beat until fully combined.
    4. 4
      Combine the coffee and milk. Stir half of the flour mixture into the butter mixture. Stir in all of the coffee and milk. Add remaining flour mixture, mix until smooth.
    5. 5
      Pour batter in prepared pans. Bake for about 25 minutes, or until cake tester comes out clean. Watch closely, chocolate cakes dry out quickly with overbaking. Cool in pans about 5 minutes. Remove cake layers from pans and place on wire racks to cool completely.
    6. 6
      Frosting: Beat butter until fluffy and smooth. Add sifted powdered sugar, beating until combined. Add peppermint extract to taste and green food coloring as desired. Stir in chocolate pieces. Frost cake layers.
    7. 7
      To decorate as suggested, I carefully broke pieces off sugar cones until they were about 3 1/2 inches and, using my cookie scoop, made small scoops of frosting for mini "ice cream" cones to top cake. Serve at room temperature.
