"This frosting adds so much to a plain Angel Food Cake. I have had good luck with both purchased cakes, cakes from mixes, or cake from scratch (really too much work when the mix is just as good). You could also use this on other cakes but is perfect with the lightness of Angel Food."

"This is a very delicious topping for angelfood cake! It almost tastes like a very creamy chocolate ice cream! Make sure to serve this immediately or to put the cake in the refridgerator after the frosting is put on the cake! I added just a tad more powdered sugar to stiffen up the icing, othewise I prepared exactly as Kimke describes. I will serve this cake with fresh strawberries. Thank you, Kimke!"
"This is so delicious! Easy and tasty treat. My 3 kids and DH loved it!"
"Excellent frosting on my Angel Food Cake!"
"I made this icing (with special dark cocoa) for a last minute birthday cake this morning for one of my hubby's co-workers who said he likes "chocolate on white cake". I used a boxed white cake mix to save time. I dug a depression in the bottom layer and filled it with a delicious dark chocolate custard I made, and spread a thin layer of this icing over it. I topped it with the second layer and spread the remaining icing over the whole cake. Rave reviews. Using the white cake balanced the richness of the chocolate perfectly, and the consistency of the icing was heavenly. Thank you so much for the wonderful recipe!"
"Wonderful with my chocolate cake that I just made. Yumm!!"
"This tastes just like chocolate mousse! I wanted to sit down with the bowl and a spoon and eat it straight... Thanks for sharing!"
"Ultra easy, ultra yummy, Thank you."
"It was delicious!!! It made so much, I ended up eating as much of it as I put on the cake!!!"
"its hot leterly"
"I made this (with the toffee pieces) and took it to a friend's home. I got so many compliments on this cake - make sure you stuff the center with toffee laden icing. This made way more icing than what I really needed, but we ate it all anyhow. :)"
"This is really good icing! It is nice and light and really compliments the angel food cake. It makes alot! I was going to just make half the recipe, I am glad I didn't though. Half would have been too little and full amounts was just a tad too much! Thanks for posting this recipe, I am sure I will be making it again!"
"Great recipe! Easy and quick to make. Very good and very rich...perfect with something as light as angel food cake! Recipe makes a lot of frosting too! "
"Amazing recipe! So easy to make and if you use ultra low fat cool whip, then it's low fat, too!!! So delicious!!! Thank you very much!!!"
"Not only was the icing great on the cake, it was OH SO YUMMY on graham crackers. Definitely a keeper!"
"Light and delicious icing, Kimke - thanks. Served with homemade angel food cake and strawberries - my angel food cake expert mother-in-law loved it! Thanks"
