  1. In a saucepan, combine sugar, cocoa powder, milk, butter and vanilla. Bring to a rolling boil, stirring constantly, and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Using an electric mixer, beat icing for 3 minutes, or until mixture cools and thickens to spreading consistency. Spread onto completely cooled cake.

I needed a icing recipe for a cake that I made from this site. I made the Dark Chocolate Cake 1. I wanted to use a chocolate ganache but I didn't have any heavy cream and I didn't want to drive to the store. This is what I did. I made the icing just as directed but I used the special dark cocoa. That was a great choice. As soon as it came off the stove I stired it just a little with a wire wisk and poured it on top of my cooled cake. It sat up so beautiful with a shine like you wouldn't believe. This was almost too easy to make and I will use it from now on instead of a ganache!!!



This was a very good creamy frosting. I noticed my frosting was becoming very hard as per the other reveiws so I beat in some milk a tablespoon at a time till it was the right consistancy



This is excellent! I was looking for an icing recipe that didn't call for confectioners sugar, (corn allergy) and this worked out great. I followed ROSEMC91's suggestion on not beating, cooling a few minutes, and pouring over cake. I halved the recipe and used on top of Wacky Cake VIII. I even used Rice Milk instead of regular milk, and this turned out BEAUTIFULLY! Love's a keeper!
