French Silk Frosting

A rather sweet frosting, it's best paired with a milder cake, such as Black Midnight Cake. It's quite pretty when finished, and a lot more fussy than, say, Cream Cheese Frosting, but really only because of the chocolate. Double boilers, grrr.

Recipe from the Betty Crocker Cookbook

French Silk Frosting

2 2/3 cups powdered sugar
2/3 cup softened butter
2 oz. melted unsweetened chocolate, cooled
¾ tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp milk

In small mixer bowl, blend butter, sugar, chocolate, and vanilla, and blend on low speed. Gradually add in milk and beat until smooth and fluffy.
