Chocolate Fudge Icing

This is delicious. It’s not as sickly as buttercream but is much nicer than plain glace icing. It sets, but not too solidly, so it’s in between butter icing & glace. This makes enough to ice and fill and 8inch cake.

Ingredients

  • 2oz butter or margarine
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespooons cocoa
  • 8oz sifted icing sugar

Method
