It is a cooked frosting that will get to a coating stage if cooked right. This was my Mothers recipe and has been used for as long as I can remember.

This familiar recipe is like the one used by my mother and grandmother. It is much better with butter instead of shortening and increase the cocoa to 2/3 c for a chocolate boost.

This is fine. You have to make sure you boil it fully and it thickens as it cools, so wait before you frost!
