This made a gob of frosting. We needed a lot - a lot! - to cover a Darth Vader cake. I actually made 2 batches of this recipe. Yikes...that was a lot of sugar. Hopefully our favorite five-year-old will love it!
- 6 C organic powdered sugar
- 1/2 C unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 sticks butter, softened
- 3/4 to 1 C organic milk
- 1 t organic chocolate extract
Sift together sugar and cocoa. Set aside. Cream together the butter and organic chocolate extract. Add in 2 C of the sugar-cocoa mixture, then 2 T of milk. Mix and repeat until all of the sugar-cocoa has been added. If the frosting is too thick, thin it out with more milk. I ended up using about 1 C milk. Frost cooled cake immediately. Let set for about 20 minutes before serving.
