Chocolate Glace Icing:
NOTE: You will need approximately 2 tablespoons boiling water for this recipe.
Sift icing sugar and cocoa together. Add butter. Gradually add boiling water beating with a fork or whisk in between each addition until icing is a thick but spreadable consistency.
TIP: If icing begins to set before you have finished icing your slice, add a few more drops of boiling water to thin down the consistency again.
