Servings : To cover an 8" cake
When you’re in a hurry and want a lovely ooey gooey fudgey type icing but without all the work of making it the ‘long’ way, here is a quick and fantastic way of getting the same results and wonderful flavor (with waaaaaaaaaay less sugar too!!)
- 2 tbsp. margarine/butter
- 8 tbsp. icing sugar
- 2 tbsp. cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla essence
- some milk
Heat the margarine until it melts, keep the heat on low. Sieve the icing sugar with the cocoa together, then add this into the melted margarine. Stir together, then slowly add milk a teaspoon at a time. You will need about 5-8 tsp. so just have a bowl of milk next to you and keep adding and stirring until you reach a smooth consistency. The icing will thicken as it cools so keep it a bit thinner than what you want the final results to look like.
Add the vanilla and turn off the heat, immediately ice your cake and sprinkle crushed nuts or cake crumbs. Give it a few minutes to set, and serve!! 🙂

If i do not have icing sugar what can i use?? Can i grind white sugar?
W/Salaam, grinding white
W/Salaam, grinding white sugar will not make it the same as icing sugar, but you can add 2 tbsp of cornflour per cup of sugar then grind and it will help a little. When you grind sugar it ends up being a bit grainy and not smooth enough.
