Cheater’s Chocolate Frosting

Remember when my husband took our boys camping so I could have time alone to get ready for school?

To welcome them all home, I made a cake.

After making the cake, though, I was too tired to make the frosting.

Pathetic, I know.

And nothing says “Welcome Home” like a naked cake, right?!

Sarcasm completely intended.

So what’s a girl to do?

I remembered a recipe I had for a quick chocolate frosting. It’s thin, more like a glaze, actually.

It took all of two minutes to make, was delicious and definitely said, “Welcome Home” much better than a plain cake ever could. Remember this the next time you need to dress up a dessert but are short on time;)

Cheater’s Chocolate Frosting

  • 1 C confectioner’s sugar
  • 1/2 C cocoa
  • 1/4 C water

Whisk together all three ingredients in a medium bowl until smooth. Drizzle glaze over cake and let sit until firm. That’s it. Enjoy!
