What's for dessert?

 This weekend for our Shabbat dessert, my dad requested that I make chocolate cake with vanilla frosting... So, I decided to share the recipe with you

Chocolate Cake:
2 c. Flour
2/3 c. Cocoa
1 1/4 tsp. Baking Soda
1/4 tsp. Baking Powder
1 2/3 c. Sugar
4 Eggs
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 c. Mayonnaise
1 1/3 c. Water

MIX all ingredients together, using a mixer. Bake in 2 {9 inch} round cake pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes.

Vanilla Frosting:
3 c. Powdered Sugar
1/4 c. Shortening {butter}
1/4 c. Water
2 tsp. Vanilla

STIR together 1 cup of the sugar, shortening and vanilla. Add remaining sugar and water alternately. Beat until smooth. Frost cooled cake.

Enjoy... And Shabbat Shalom!! : )
We decided it would be fun to make individual serving cakes, here are the results:
