My Grandma made the BEST chocolate frosting ever! The stuff was magic. I could eat it by the spoonfuls and did when she wasn't watching. She had just the right proportions of shortening and cocoa. It was light and fluffy, yet creamy and rich. I have spent years trying to duplicate it to no avail, though I think mine is pretty tasty too. I have been know to eat it by the spoonfuls when no one is watcing and when they are too.
