This is the cake my Mother always made for special occasions. It's the cake my family asks for, too! We use it for birthdays, holidays, and special occasions. A slice of this cake, with (or without!) milk, is PERFECT anytime!

How to Make Bonnie Butter Cake with Mama's Fudge Icing--Part 2


  1. Melt butter and chocolate; stir in sugar and milk. Heat till sugar melts and let it boil to soft ball 5-6 minutes. Add 1/2 t. vanilla. Stir till it's cool enough to put on cake. (It hardens fast!)
  2. NOTE: I put the icing on the first and second layers when it is still a little runny. I pour it over the top when it starts to stay pretty well, so the top looks pretty. I put waxed paper under the edges of the cake, so when the icing drips down, I can pull it back up the sides. After you finish icing the sides of the cake, you can remove the waxed paper at the bottom, so the plate will be clean.
