Thank you so much for your cake and frosting recipe. I can't have chocolate but I think I will make it for the family. I am sure they will enjoy it.

just want to verify the frosting - You cook the first part. I question it because I have a receipe very similiar that you don't bring it to a boil.

Have you tried the cake without the buttermilk and use regular milk instead, I always forget to pick up the butter milk and wonder if regular milk will do if you didn't have the buttermilk

Always like to try something new. Sound great. thanks

I bring the icing to a boil, then add the powdered sugar and nuts and remove it from the heat. This is a very moist cake, I always make it just like it says. It was my best friend Lisa's recipe, and she passed away from a brain tumor. I always think of her when I make it. She was a marvelous cook.
