“When my Mom says she's making chocolate cake, she is making a yellow cake with this icing. It is exactly like her Sweet Milk and Sugar Icing (Frosting) but with cocoa added. Just like with that recipe, do NOT try to make this frosting if it is raining, it will NEVER get hard. I also love this spread between 2 teacakes (Anne's Teacakes (Tea Cakes)) to make a sandwich cookie.”
