butter, at room temperature
unsweetened cocoa powder, divided
1 (16 ounce) package
confectioners' sugar, sifted
This butter cream icing is great! Used it for in-between the layers of a white cake. I sifted the cocoa and confectioners' sugar and I added a pinch of salt. Mmmmm
Good recipe but definately add the salt or it will be too sweet. Also I found I had to add extra milk to thin it a bit. Make sure you mix for a few minutes.
