A few weeks ago Stinkerbelle wanted to try out a new recipe for chocolate cake. It didn't really turn out (notice the cake is not very high!!), and the recipe for the frosting sounded a bit strange to me. So I went looking online for a recipe that looked good. We really liked this frosting and it is now my go-to recipe for chocolate frosting! I found it at All Recipes.com.
Creamy Chocolate Frosting
2 ¾ c confectioners sugar
6 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
6 Tbsp butter
5 Tbsp evaporated milk
1 Tsp vanilla
Sift sugar and cocoa, set aside. Cream butter until smooth, then gradually beat in sugar mixture alternately with evaporated milk. Blend in vanilla. Beat until light and fluffy.
**will frost, but not fill a layer cake**
