The problem with this recipe is that I didn't know it was a glaze, not a frosting. So, as a glaze it is great, but a frosting it is not. It is very thin if you follow this recipe. It soaks in to the cake and pools at the sides of pan. But, it makes a devil's food moist and yummy.



*READ THIS IT WILL HELP* After fully cooking the frosting, put it in a mixer with a whip attachment. Whip on high until it starts to lose its shine. I also sugest using the frosting right awaywhen it is still a little warm. (It will become very stiff quickly) If it dose get stiff before it is used take a 1/4 of the frosting and nuker wave it for about 30 seconds. Then mix and use. I hope this helps.



There is no way that this recipe is written down correctly to make frosting. It barley even makes a glaze more like chocolate milk that does not harden over but stay's a liquid. The flavor is good but it in no way makes frosting or even a glaze
