“This is a rich chocolate frosting with a hint of cream cheese flavor. It is not overly sweet and will not overpower any cake that you have baked. If you are looking for something nice and sweet but not over the top, this is the recipe for you. I came up with this for that reason for me. I don't like milk chocolate frosting or anything extrememly heavy because I make my cake light and flavorful and do not want to hide that.”
