My great aunt made this simple chocolate frosting for a simple chocolate cake at least once a week for her family which included my semi orphaned father, who like her, was a huge chocolate lover. If she was alive today, Evie would be 133 years old. She lived to quite an advanced age and I was lucky to be next to the frosting bowl many times to get the privilege of licking the spatula. My mother continued to make the cake for my father and I can honestly say that neither he nor I ever tired of it. —dymnyno
