First time I made any sort of frosting from scratch without buying tubs from supermarket. Was absolutely gorgeous and very easy to make. - 20 Apr 2015


Best icing ever! Tastes exactly like the chocolate fudge icing my granny used to make. Be sure to cook the cocoa with the butter. Next time, I might make it with espresso rather than milk. - 23 May 2016
