¾ cup cocoa powder, sifted

Guidelines: To make the cake, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a few 9-inch pans with Baker’s Joy (or butter and flour pans).
Cream butter, shortening and sugar until eventually light-weight and fluffy. Add yolks slowly and gradually, mixing very well.
Blend dry components and include to creamed mixture, alternating with buttermilk. Add vanilla.
Conquer egg whites to rigid peaks but not dry. Fold whipped whites into batter. Divide batter between well prepared pans.
Bake 25 minutes or right until cake tests finished. Amazing wholly right before frosting. Flippantly drizzle vanilla syrup on each individual layer throughout ahead of frosting.
Make frosting: Cream softened butter. Sift cocoa and powdered sugar collectively. Increase to butter, alternating with half-and-half. Increase vanilla. Blend effectively, scraping down sides of bowl. Ice best and sides of cake with frosting.
