In a small bowl combine sugar and cocoa until blended and "lump-free".
In a separate bowl with an electric mixer, beat the butter until fluffy.
Add vanilla.
Alternately add the cocoa mixture and milk and beat until completely smooth. Scrape sides of bowl often.
Frosting will be thin, it firms up as it sets. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Cake freezes well.
