As much as I love to bake, when it comes to cake, I stick to the boxed versions rather than making them from scratch. I’ve yet to find a cake recipe that comes out better than Betty Crocker, plus the boxed ones are so much easier to make. However, frosting is a different story as I can’t stand the canned stuff. I’ve been making this chocolate frosting for years now, and it beats the store bought kind any day!
CREAMY COCOA FROSTING
- 2/3 cup margarine, softened
- 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 4 cups powdered sugar
- 3 teaspoons vanilla
- 4 tablespoons milk
Beat the margarine and cocoa first, then add in the powdered sugar, vanilla and milk. Beat well until creamy.
