Hi, In your recipe for Special occasion chocolate cake I notice in the ingredients list there is 100g 70% cocoa chocolate 325g icing (confectioners) sugar 1 tbsp golden/corn syrup But in the instructions none of these ingredients are mentioned. Are these ingredients part of the recipe and if so when are they added?

Thanks
