      use this frosting for #2496 cake was in 2 (8x8) square pan. and this frosting was just enough to have a thin coating on top. I use around 1 1/2 T of water, i'm not sure of the right consistency of the frosting though. UPDATE: doubled the recipe and added 1/2 T corn syrup for added gloss, use around 3 1/2 T hot water, and it was just perfect to layer 2 (8x8) square pan

      Very nice. Simple, not too large chocolate cake. We ate it up and it went down especially well with glasses of cold milk.
