Some of the best frostings have almost the same recipes with a few changes in flavor done by adding some fruit syrups or vegetable juices like sweet corn. They can make a very big difference in the tastes. Regional chocolate frostings, like the ones made in France, Italy, or Great Britain are gaining a large audience throughout the world. Children love chocolates, but giving them dark chocolates which consist almost 35% cocoa and at least 10% of alkaloids, can prove harmful for them.
To enjoy chocolate in its most raw form or lindt form, which consists about 70 - 85% of cocoa, it's advisable to mix it with other supplements, such as milk or cream to reduce its toxicity. This can be easily done by making dark chocolate frosting and spreading them on a healthy cake of any flavor or a pan cake, or even an ordinary breakfast so that it does not prove harmful for the body. Chocolates can be injurious, only if they are eaten out of proportion, as they have sugar and milk, which contain certain fatty substances that adhere to our intestines and increase our fat levels.
We would conclude by saying that the cocoa bean is a legend, which will never fade with time so for all you chocoholics there, make the most you can out of dark chocolate, and come up with some of your own chocolate cake recipes. Baking cakes is fun, so as long as there is chocolate, keep baking!
