chocolate cake and Linda Bruderer's mom's frosting




Above are 3 pictures. The top two are Guy and Scarlett frosting and decorating the Beverly Nye chocolate cake with Linda Bruderer's mom frosting recipe. I used to always make this.

The bottom picture is one that Jocelyn's friend sent her and it reminded Jocelyn of the cake I used to make, which was first made for me by Linda Bruderer herself. Thought it was time to include these 2 recipes.
