Chocolate Frosting

Is it frosting, or is it icing, and what’s the difference?  Technically speaking, icing is thinner and glossier than frosting (think doughnuts).  This frosting works well to finish cakes or cupcakes, you can adjust the amount of icing sugar you add to change the texture to your liking.  As always, source out Dutch cocoa powder, it’s darker and richer than the usual store bought stuff.
