    Good recipe. I topped it with some a cherry on each piece of cake. I also reduced the sugar to 3 1/2 cups and increased the cocoa powder by 4-5 tbl spoons. Just to give it a more chocolate taste. It is a quick and easy topping for cakes....I will make again for sure.  -  15 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This icing is absolutely too sweet!I guess it might be all that confectioner's sugar. Is there any way I can mae this icing less sweet?  -  02 Aug 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
