Step Two: Review the instructions and decide to do it your own way instead.
In my case, I read the recipe here, then decided to shortcut by using a cake mix and splurge with my Grandma O's fudge frosting.
Step Three: Feel bewildered by your not-quite-what-you-expected results.
|Frosting is grainier than it should be. Grrrr.|
Step Four: Vow to try it again another day.
