The incredible flavors of French Silk Pie is a frosting. This cocoa flavored buttercream  has a creamy, silky consistency; so good that it could be eaten by the spoonful! And, yes, this is the frosting I used to make at the Kirby House restaurant. 

FRENCH SILK FROSTING  enough to cover a 3-layer cake                                                                    
4 cups powdered sugar
1 cup butter, softened  (2 sticks)
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon unsweetened baking cocoa powder + 3 T. vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons milk
  1. In a medium bowl, blend powdered sugar, butter, cocoa powder, vegetable oil and vanilla on low speed. Increase speed to high. 
  2. Gradually add milk; beat until smooth and very creamy and  fluffy; the color should also lighten -- about 4 to 5 minutes.
