Cooked Fudge Frosting

Cooked Fudge Frosting created by KerfuffleUponWincle

A Tradition in the South. Pour this frosting over a cooled yellow cake in which holes have been poked to allow all the goodness to saturate the cake. The frosting firms up after cooling and makes a wonderful cake topping.

    I followed your recipe and my fudge frosting is not hardening. What happened
  4. KerfuffleUponWincle
    Just like I remember my mom making! I added a pinch of salt, boiled the mixture about 4 minutes, and skipped the ice water bath. I wanted the hot frosting to soak into my Recipe #515276 poked full of holes! Made for Spring PAC 2014.
