Cool rectangle in pan on wire rack; cool rounds 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire rack and cool completely before frosting. In a medium bowl beat sugar and butter together on low speed until blended. Mix in vanilla and chocolate. Gradually beat in milk, just enough to make a smooth, spreadable frosting. If frosting seems too thick beat in more milk, too thin, beat in more sugar. If the frosting doesn't seem to be coming together keep beating and eventually it will get to a creamy, smooth stage. Frost cake immediately.

Food Joke

On the last day of kindergarten, the children brought presents for their teacher. The florist's son gave her a box. She hook it, held it up, and said, "I bet I know what it is. Is it flowers?" "That's right!" said the boy. Then the candy store owner's son gave her his package. She shook it, held it up, and said, "I bet I know what it is. Is it a box of candy?" "That's right!" said the boy. Next the liquor store owner's son handed her his box. She shook it, held it up, and noticed that it was leaking. She touched a drop with her finger and tasted it. "I bet I know what it is. Is it wine?" "No," said the boy. She touched another drop to her tongue. "Is it Champagne?" "No," said the boy. "I give up. What is it?" The boy grinned. "A puppy!"
