This is the perfect topping for the Red Velvet Chocolate Cake. It adds just the right amount of sweetness and makes the cake look great with the way it pours over the top drizzling over its sides. This is the perfect complimentary icing for this cake, coming alongside it from my grandmother's kitchen.
