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.

This icing was delicious. I put it on my husbands birthday cake, he loves whipped cream icing as the other members of my family do not. This more than pleased them all. I also added about 1 3/4 cups sugar and it had just the right amount of sweetness. Perfect!!

Wow! Gerry what a wonderful icing. It was light, creamy, rich and very chocolaty. Just the perfect foil for the chocolate cake I made. We have a new favourite icing. I will be making this quick and easy to make icing often. Thanks so much for sharing.

Great taste! Reminds me of a Frosty from Wendy's. It was wonderful on the mild chocolate cake I made!

Try adding a package of those instant coffee mixes - gives it a mocha flavour. Use 1 1/2 cups cream with 1/2 cup icing sugar for 9x13 cake. Great on Jamaica Me Crazy Chili Real Banana Milk Cake

ohhhhh so good! I followed The Only Chocolate Cake Recipe You'll Ever Need! (Devil's Food)
and split the layers of 2 9" cakes (so I had 4 layers) and used this recipe between the layers and on the top and sides. OMG< this was to die for! Thanks so much for sharing...and like PetesNina, I think I ate half the bowl before it ever made it to the cake. A sure winner!

Another winner from Gerry. So insanely easy and very tasty. I used 1 3/4 cup icing sugar and most felt it was sweet enough. I may use 2 cups next time but it really is excellent as is. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
