Kathryn's Favorite Mocha Icing

Francine ---


I was lucky to get this ICING recipe from the Laurier Café in MONTREAL QUEBEC. They are renown for its best ever Rotisserie chicken.
A good friend of mine, Kathryn who is originally from New York speaks very well French as her second language and we have much fun at talking together.
We love to go to different places and we both were amazed at the "Museum of Ava Gardner in Smithfield in North Carolina. One of our favorite places to eat is at the Umstead Hotel and Spa in Cary and rue Claire in Durham.
Over years this icing became her favorite .
You should meet her 2 cats ..
