Here's the icing recipe for Black Magic Cake that I said I would send if any one wanted it. Sorry it's been a week or more because I had a grandson graduate from college and a son coming home for a couple of weeks from USC at Los Angeles.
Hope all of you like the icing. Be sure to let the milk get room temperature.
