Chocolate Banana Cake Disaster

by laine on April 12, 2012

Sometimes things just don’t work out. The cake part turned out great…The icing, well…I swear I followed the recipe, but right from the get go, I thought, this doesn’t seem right. It wasn’t, but it’s still chocolate, cream and cake, so we ate it!

was it hot in the kitchen? i have the most trouble with runny icing at jack’s birthday, so that’s the first thing that comes to mind.

or do you think the recipe was just posted incorrectly?

Not sure..It was a Canadian Living recipe, so it should be correct. The icing was scalded cream poured over chocolate and stirred until melted, cooled completely, then whipped until firm (this is where it went wrong, it did not thicken up at all), then once the chocolate whipped cream mixture had firm peaks, you were to combine with more whipped cream. I knew it was not going to work after the first mixture went wrong, but I still blended them together anyway.
