    ~Lana~'s Note:

    A very fluffy, light cocoa frosting. I love to make frosting with butter, you get a dreamy, creamy consistency.

      I didn't care for this at all...Really wasn't fluffy? I did only have skim milk so possibly that could have been the reason.

      I ended up leaving on the side of the cake and not icing with it and let my kids/and others use if they wanted or not use. Just not a favorite.

      This was very good. I made a half batch and it worked out great to put just a thin layer of frosting on a pan of brownies I made. I plan on using it again this weekend. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.
