Frosting for Texas Sheet cake
1 stick butter
4 Tbsp cocoa
6 Tbsp milk
Boil together. Pour into mixing bowl, then add 4 cups powdered sugar and 1 tsp vanilla, beating well. Spread on cake while still warm.

Kim's note: I start making the frosting when I take the cake out of the oven. If not sometimes the frosting will run off the cake.
