Chocolate frosting is really the way to go when it comes to topping a chocolate cake and it's a no brainer if you have a chocolate block and an all purpose cream ready at hand. Make it into a chocolate ganache like in my chocolate birthday cake here and my buttermilk chocolate cake here and you will be ready to sing that happy birthday song in no time. But what if you don't have chocolate around? Will you panic? You shouldn't. That cocoa powder under your nose will be your aid. You can make it into a chocolate cake frosting like I did. :)
How I came up with my chocolate frosting? Well, I only had forgotten my father's birthday and I had to be reminded by my sisters about it. I had to buy a cake or whip something up myself. Since I had the common baking ingredients around plus condensed milk, I had decided to go the baking route. For the cake, I used my chocolate cake recipe from here and substituted the chocolate frosting using this cocoa icing recipe below.

My sisters thought I had spent a lot for the cake with the delicious frosting and all. I had to tell them it only cost me a hundred pesos and left their jaws hanging. Haha! I'm exaggerating a bit but you get the picture right? :)
