Chocolate Glossed Brown Sugar Cake

One very pretty cake & pretty darn good too!

Soft moist cake with a rich chocolate coating! This is elegant & delicious. This cake & candy topping is very easy but the results look & taste like you worked hard! ENJOY!
1 Cup Shortening
8 TBS Butter Softened
3 Eggs
2 Cups Brown Sugar
1 Cup Coffee COOLED
1 Tsp. Vanilla
3 Cups Flour
1 Tsp. Salt
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Heaping Cup Chocolate Chips
Spray & Flour 1 tube pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a deep bowl beat the shortening & butter until fluffy. Add the brown sugar & beat again. Now add the eggs & the vanilla & beat Again. Scrape the sides & the bottom of the bowl to get all the ingredients mixed into your batter. Now stir the flour, salt & baking powder together. Add 1/3 to your batter & beat on low. Add 1/3 of the cooled coffee & beat then 1/3 of the flour mixture, beat then the rest of the coffee & beat, then add the remaining flour & beat!  Now stir in by hand the chocolate chips. Spoon batter into your prepared pan! Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour, test to make sure your cake is baked all the way through. Cake should spring back when touched & an inserted toothpick should come out clean. Let cake cool 10 minutes then run a knife along the inner & outer edges, place your plate over the top of the cake & invert. cake will slide right out! Let Cool & the coat with the following candy coating!
2 Cups of good quality melting chocolate ( I used Wilbur's Melting Wafers) even good quality chocolate chips will work!
4 TBS Butter
1 Tsp Vanilla 
Dash of Salt
1 & 2/3 Cups Powdered Sugar
Milk enough to get a good spreadable texture I used about 4 TBS!
Melt Chocolate & Butter together until melted & smooth. I did this in the microwave on melt setting stirring 1/2 way thru & again at the end. Once Melted stir in your salt & vanilla. Now stir in your powdered sugar then enough milk to get a soft but not runny spreadable texture. Spread over the cake & down the sides then drizzle some over the cake to make it pretty. Let cool & it sets into a firm but soft candy coating! This is DELICIOUS!
