A homemade cake deserves homemade icing and in my humble opinion a yellow cake NEEDS a gooey chocolate fudgey icing and I found the perfect chocolate fudge icing recipe courtesy of BettyR on ChefTalk.
This is my first homemade icing so I stuck to the recipe exactly and I Made This:
1 ½ cups granulated sugar
¼ + 2 tbsp cornstarch-packed
7 tbsp cocoa powder
¾ tsp salt
1 ½ cups boiling water
6 tbsp butter
1 tbsp vanilla
BettyR’s original recipe has microwave instructions but I preferred the stove top method
- Combine sugar, cornstarch, cocoa, butter, and salt.
- Whisk in boiling water then cook over medium heat until thick & bubbly. This will happen quickly so don’t step away and start doing dishes like I did lol
- Remove from heat and add butter and vanilla.
- Let cool then frost cake!
I suggest you use it to frost this yummy yellow cake 🙂
