Cocoa frosting can be a great way to embellish any special dessert.
Ingredients
  • 4 teaspoons baker's cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 3 tablespoons hot water
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 1¾ cups confectioners' sugar
Instructions
  1. Put the cocoa in a small saucepan; add the cold water and stir until perfectly smooth; then the hot water, and cook for one or two minutes, add vanilla and a speck of salt, then stir in enough sugar to make it stiff enough to spread nicely. Beat until smooth and glossy and free from lumps.
  2. If too thick, add a little cold water. If not thick enough, add a little sugar. Never make a frosting so stiff that it will have to be made smooth with a wet knife. It is better to let it run to the sides of the cake. For frosting sides of the cake, make a little stiffer.
