    This is the best homemade frosting I have had for sometime! It tastes even better on a homemade cake. It is really glossy and easy to spread and has a very good taste. I frost my cake with this while the frosting is slightly warm. Definitly a keeper!  -  26 Feb 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was pretty good. I used cocoa powder instead of Baker's chocolate. It thickened up almost instantly after it began to boil. I actually forgot to add the butter and vanilla at the end, and it still tasted good. I should have waited until it cool to spread it, though, because while it was warm it was too runny.  -  31 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe was great, I will keep this one as my favorite. It is not too sweet, spreads nice and looks great. It's the perfect choice if you don't want a real sweet icing. thumbs up!!!!  -  11 Mar 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
