Recipe by Gerry
This is a lush light frosting which keeps it's consistency for 1-2 days in the refrigerator and doesn't seem to sink into the cake as so many do. Simple and easy to make. A delicious topping for those special occasions when you want something special.

What a great icing. I wanted a light, cream-based icing and chose this one as I know Gerry's recipes are so good. Smart move on my part. I went with 1 1/4 cups of sugar as we don't like things too sweet. This was creamy, but light-flavoured and floated on the chocolate cake I'd baked. The whole family loved it. Thanks, Gerry.
- 2 cups whipping cream
- 1 cup icing sugar (2 cups if added sweetness is desired, I use 1 1/2 to 2cups)
- 1⁄4 cup cocoa
