3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 3/4 cups granulated sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla paste.

3 1/2 cups powdered sugar


  • Place a strainer over a large mixing bowl. Measure in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cocoa, and sugar.

    Sift the powdered sugar and cocoa powders through a mesh strainer into a bowl and combine. Cream the butter and shortening. Add the cocoa/sugar and mix slowly. While the mixer is running, pour in the milk and vanilla. Mix till combined.
