    ColCadsMom's Note:

    When my Mom says she's making chocolate cake, she is making a yellow cake with this icing. It is exactly like her Sweet Milk and Sugar Icing (Frosting) but with cocoa added. Just like with that recipe, do NOT try to make this frosting if it is raining, it will NEVER get hard. I also love this spread between 2 teacakes (Anne's Teacakes (Tea Cakes)) to make a sandwich cookie.

      This frosting is really good! At least, the ingredients I used following your directions made an awesome frosting. We do not like super sweet frosting, and we do like dark chocolate, so I halved the sugar to a cup and I doubled the cocoa to 1/2 cup. I also used fat free evaporated milk. The frosting came out perfect. Not too sweet, very dark, and just the right spreading consistency. Thanks, ColCadsMom. =)
