Chocolate frosting does not have to come in a can that you buy in the store. When I was young, cakes were made from scratch and the frosting was whipped up in the kitchen with love and butter. All the children would gather around to wait for their chance to lick the bowl. My brothers and I were always there waiting.
The flavor of frostings made at home is so much richer than any store bought canned frosting. The canned version of frosting are loaded with preservatives and strange fats and chemicals. If you like chocolate frosting, like I do, give this recipe a try. You just might be converted to making frosting at home from now on.
This recipe was shared with me by my friend, Andra Cook of Raleigh, NC.
