ISO Chocolate Cake with White Icing

i'm trying to replicate a "frosting" my mother used to make and not having a very good time of it. i always thought it was pretty much standard, but in my search have discovered that it was not a butter cream, nor a cream cheese, nor do i believe it was the "7 minute" since it was not fluffy. it was white and yummy and not fluffy; that's all i can recall. any ideas i would appreciate.

Was it just icing sugar with a little mild added to keep it soft?

Could it have been a boiled icing?

My mother's standard icing/frosting was powdered sugar, softened butter, vanilla extract, milk, and a bit of coffee. The coffee could always be replaced with some melted chocolate or with just the vanilla extract. That was our standard icing for EVERYTHING!

Maybe it is this frosting.

I always go to this page when I want to try a different frosting.
