Jake and I celebrated our 14th anniversary while we were out of town this week. D insisted that we have a cake...it's not a party without cake, right?! So, after a hike out to Royal Gorge, building a snowman family, and an epic snowball fight, I whipped this up...
- 3 C organic powdered sugar
- ¾ C unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 stick butter, softened
- ¼ to ½ C organic milk
- splash of red wine
Sift together sugar and cocoa. Set aside. Cream together the butter and splash of wine. Add in 1 C of the sugar-cocoa mixture, then 1 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 ½ C milk.
Frost cooled cake immediately. Let set for about 20 minutes before serving.
