Good recipe. I topped it with some a cherry on each piece of cake. I also reduced the sugar to 3 1/2 cups and increased the cocoa powder by 4-5 tbl spoons. Just to give it a more chocolate taste. It is a quick and easy topping for cakes....I will make again for sure.

This icing is absolutely too sweet!I guess it might be all that confectioner's sugar. Is there any way I can mae this icing less sweet?

We used Dr. Pepper and poured it over Cola Cake made with Dr. Pepper. Most kids liked the icing, but a couple said they would have preferred regular frosting, which is the only reason for 4 rather than 5 stars.

Really good quick recipe. We use this on top of the cola cake. I leave out the nuts due to an allergy and leave the rest the same.
