layers, but frost only 1/2 inch around top edge of cake. Decorate
chocolate frosting with reserved 1/3 cup white frosting, thinned with
1 to 2 teaspoons water for easy spreading. Chocolate Frosting: Combine
2 squares (2 oz) baking chocolate, sugar and water in sauce pan. Cook
over low heat, stirring constantly, until chocolate melts and mixture
is smooth and thickened. Remove from heat. Add egg yolks; beat
thoroughly. Cool. Cream Crisco and vanilla. Gradually blend in sifted
confectioners' sugar, creaming well. Reserve 1/3 cup of this frosting
to decorate cake. Add the cool chocolate mixture to remaining white
frosting; beat until smooth. From Pilsbury's 5th Baking Contest--Mrs.
