Cake recipes and their frostings. All from scratch and all easy. Try the boiled chocolate frosting. It isn't as hard to make as it sounds, but your stirring arm will have gotten it's workout for the day. My grandma used to frost angel food cake with this frosting--the angel food was her idea of healthy cake counteracting the sinful, naughty chocolate frosting. Yes, I always ate the frosting and left the cake.
My daughter's favorite is the powder sugar frosting. When her friends ask for our cookie recipe, she informs them that the cookie doesn't matter, it can be 'store bought'; it's my mom's frosting that makes it so yummy! How could I not post the recipe with that testimony of comfort?
My dad has a saying about cake, "I like a little cake with my frosting", but that doesn't mean the cake shouldn't be moist and delicious...and all of the recipes listed here definitely are!
