Karen Higginbotham, of Palm Bay, Florida, requests recipes for a moist butter cake and a fudge frosting.

And Mary Ann Miller, of Boonville, Indiana, sends this recipe to frost that delicious cake.

No-Cook Fudge Frosting

9 cups sifted confectioner’s sugar, about 2 pounds
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup boiling water
2 teaspoons vanilla

In very large bowl, combine confectioner’s sugar and cocoa powder. Add butter, boiling water and vanilla. Beat with electric mixer on low speed until combined. Beat for 1 minute on medium speed. If necessary, cool for 20 minutes, or until mixture reaches spreading consistency. This frosts tops and sides of two 8- or 9-inch cake layers. (Halve the recipe to frost a 13-by-9-by-2-inch cake.)
