THANKSGIVING CHOCOLATE CAKE: Special Occasion Frosting: Retro Ad & Recipe

Who says you can't have Chocolate Cake on Thanksgiving? This Baker Chocolate Ad from the 1950s features a pilgrim and a recipe for CHOCOLATE HOLIDAY CAKE with SPECIAL-OCCASION FROSTING. Recipe is for frosting only, but you can make your favorite chocolate cake!


3 squares Baker’s Unsweetened Chocolate
1 1/2 cups sifted confectioners’ sugar
2 tablespoons hot water
1 egg
4 tablespoons softened butter

Melt chocolate in double boiler. Remove from boiling water; add sugar and water and blend. Add egg and beat well. Then add butter, a tablespoon at a time, beating thoroughly after each amount.

This recipe makes 1 1/2 cups frosting, or enough to cover tops and sides of two 8- or 9-inch layers, or top and sides of 8x8x2-inch cake (generously), or top and sides of 10x10x2-inch cake.

NOTE: For a more generous frosting, double above recipe.

"For almost 200 years the Walter Baker folks have been developing quality chocolate products. No wonder good cooks say: Any chocolate food worth making is worth making with Walter Baker’s Premium No. 1 Chocolate."
