Chocolate Cake Icing

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by tamarinda

I found this when looking for other recipes for my Guittard ground chocolate besides hot chocolate. I haven't made this, but I wouldn't expect a fluffy frosting, but rather more of a glaze. Source:

This made a lovely chocolate glaze. I used it on the homemade white cake I made. I had a craving for white cake with a little chocolate and this was the perfect accompaniment. The glaze was nice, thin, not too thick, sweet, with a nice chocolate flavor. I did have a little difficulty with the measurements and had to use a lot more icing sugar than he recipe called for. Thank you for sharing your recipe tamarinda. Made for Spring PAC/2012.
