Fudge Icing


  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup light cream
  • 1 tablespoon butter


Mix sugar and cream in a pot and boil gently until mixture forms a soft ball when dropped into cold water. Remove from heat and add butter. Beat mixture until it starts to thicken and crystallize. Immediately spread on the cooled cake.
