Angel Food Cake with YUMMY Chocolate Whipped Cream icing

Angel Food Cake with YUMMY Chocolate Whipped Cream icing created by Shannon 24

This frosting adds so much to a plain Angel Food Cake. I have had good luck with both purchased cakes, cakes from mixes, or cake from scratch (really too much work when the mix is just as good). You could also use this on other cakes but is perfect with the lightness of Angel Food.

    I can’t believe all of the good reviews on this recipe. 1/2 cup of unsweetened chocolate is way too much. It has too strong of chocolate taste and is unpleasant. I wish I would have cut it back to 1/4 cup or even less. The chocolate angel food cake I made only took 1/4 cup. I also don’t think it needs the 1/4 cup of milk. This made the frosting too runny. I feel like I wasted a whole cake plus my time since the frosting ruined it. So disappointed and so is the family.

    I made this icing (with special dark cocoa) for a last minute birthday cake this morning for one of my hubby's co-workers who said he likes "chocolate on white cake". I used a boxed white cake mix to save time. I dug a depression in the bottom layer and filled it with a delicious dark chocolate custard I made, and spread a thin layer of this icing over it. I topped it with the second layer and spread the remaining icing over the whole cake. Rave reviews. Using the white cake balanced the richness of the chocolate perfectly, and the consistency of the icing was heavenly. Thank you so much for the wonderful recipe!
