Ingredients

Boiled Chocolate Frosting
(double this for a two layer cake)

1 cup white sugar
1 tbsp. cocoa
2 heaping tbsp. corn starch
1 cup hot water
1 tbsp. butter
a pinch of salt


Method: Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a pot.


Add hot water slowly, stirring constantly.


Add the butter.


On medium heat bring to a boil stirring constantly to prevent lumping.


Cook for approximately 5 minutes after coming to a boil or until thick.


Now this must be thick. Cool for approximately 10 minutes stirring occasionally.


Spread on the bottom layer of a two layer cake. Put the second layer on top and ice all over.

Notes

This came from a Winnipeg bakery. It looks like a chocolate jelly on the cake. Only works on a chocolate cake.
