Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Yummy Chocolate Frosting

Everyone has their favorite chocolate frosting, right? Well...here’s mine. I used this for my grandson’s birthday cake a while back. I used it on a chocolate cake....chocolate and more chocolate. Can’t go wrong with that, right?

Yummy Chocolate Frosting
1 1/2 cups butter ~ room temperature
3/4 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
7 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup milk
In a large mixing bowl, combine the butter and cocoa powder. Mix in the vanilla.
Add the powdered sugar, one cup at a time, until it’s all added.
Drizzle in the milk and beat on high until light and fluffy.
This recipe makes a lot but is easily reduced by half. This amount frost a 3 layer 9-inch cake, two 9x13 cakes or 30 cupcakes.


Combine the butter and cocoa 
then add the vanilla.

Gently add the powdered sugar, 
one cup at a time.

Next add the milk and whip until fluffy.

Couldn't you just dive right in?

Frost your cake then chill 
it until ready to serve.

Here's what we did! Cute, huh?

Now go make a cake!
