Here are just a few Household Hints from my favorite magazine.

When I use chocolate frosting containing butter I always put the frosted cake in the oven for a few seconds, leaving the door open. The result is that all spatula marks and rough spots disappear, and the frosting is smooth and glossy. Care must be taken however, not to let the frosting get too hot or it will run.--A.L California

(This method may be used successfully with other frostings-Ed)

And possibly the first Mocha!

My family enjoys a beverage which I make by adding a little instant coffee to the cocoa paste before adding the hot water or milk. The amount may be varied to suit individual tastes. Mrs. J.E.L. New Mexico
