In my quest to find that oh-so-heavenly chocolate fudge icing, this one was the champion, the savior and sinfully irresistible. And all thanks to my cousin Masturah for giving it to me. I wanted a one which would not be too hard like royal icing and not too soft like fresh cream icing so this just was “Just perfect”. It was easily spreadable and easy to make also.

The icing is a bit soft before refrigeration, but don’t panic,because I’ve already told you that would be khekhekhe So, let it chill in there and be amazed when it comes out afterwards, you’ll love it for sure, God be willing!

I made this Zebra cake almost a year back for my brother’s birthday. It’s a zebra cake inside, covered in chocolate fudge frosting with some piped flowers on top.  🙂
