I never understood the difference, but who really cares if it is homemade, right? Growing up, Grandma J and/or my Mom always had extra to put on graham crackers. Tonight, I made sure I had extra so the kids could dip in some animal crackers. Sooo yummy!
All of this is in preparation for Capps' birthday. And I know that I was supposed to decorate a cake for him, and I have searched and had a few ideas for him (on THE day he wants pizza and Krispy Kreme) but when I asked him about it, he said he wanted chocolate cake with really yummy chocolate icing. I immediately knew what recipe I'd use. When I let him lick the spoon, he gave me a compliment that can beat no other, he said, "I think this is going to be almost as good as if Mrs. Schreiner made it." :)
So, no fancy cake that will take two hours to decorate, but I have no hand mixer, so this icing did take awhile to mix up. And I will still do something fancy on the cake. As I sit here at 10 PM, still trying to decide that will be....
(and if you need a really good chocolate frosting recipe, let me know)
