  13. :- Do not boil.
  14. Stir, quite vigorously, till you get a smooth texture.

  16. Cool slightly, before pouring over the cake and spread evenly to coat completely.
  17. Let the icing set for a few hours, before serving American Rich Chocolate Cake.
  18. :- There is no need to add baking powder, the egg white itself acts as a raising agent. :- Remember that when buying dark chocolate, you must try to get the finest dark chocolate that is high in cocoa content.
