What to expect: if you follow this recipe to the letter, you will get an awesome, very delicious chocolate frosting recipe, resembling that old timey frosting you had on birthday cake of yesteryear. It will impress, and let's be honest that is what you secretly hope when baking for others. However, it is not a stiff recipe for complicated decorating, so you will need to adjust this with shortening instead of butter for that, but it will let you pipe some swirls, if that's all you need. I did add a little extra cocoa and a tad more sugar to slightly firm it, but a double recipe generously frosted a two layer 9 in. cake and had enough left for another layer. It will set up if you frost the cake and fridge it. I used this to frost "David's Yellow Cake" recipe on this site. I would give 5 stars, but just deducted a little since it is not a firmer frosting and since you need to double the recipe to make enough for regular use. Yowsers, this is a very tasty recipe and will be a staple in my baking.
