If I haven't mentioned it before chocolate cake with white icing is my favorite dessert. I agree with N.M. that this is an American classic and in my opinion it out shines apple pie by a long shot!

To make the icing you dissolve the sugar and corn syrup in the egg whites. Once they're dissolved the egg whites are beaten in a stand mixer for quite awhile. The directions said until the mixture is cool. I set the mixer and went and cleaned the living room. When I returned the volume in the mixer had exponentially expanded and I had fluffy icing!!
And, there you have it. The perfect cake to finish a fantastic challenge!
