1- Heat the oven to 160C (325F). Grease 2 ovenproof glass bowls, one slightly larger than the other.
2- Blend the butter with sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
3- Add the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt.
4- Fill the bowls about two thirds full. Bake the smaller cake for about 50 minutes and the larger cake for about 65 minutes.
5- Take out of oven and cool in bowls for 10 minutes. Then move to a rectangular platter so the cakes resemble a snowman.
6- Cool completely.
7- Ice with vanilla frosting and decorate.
