I am a mega-fan of chocolate cake. Especially, when the chocolate is dark. I love buttercream frosting. I’m not much of a fan of whipped frosting in the slightest. Nothing beats a buttercream frosted chocolate cake. How absolutely tasty! This recipe is very easy to follow. It takes some time but it isn’t anything that you can’t accomplish 🙂
One of our friends over at Bless Us O Lord had this to say about the recipe:
My house was nice and cool so the cake sat on the dining room table awaiting the singing of the birthday song, but if it’s at all warm in your house you will want to make room on a refrigerator shelf — this buttercream frosting is very soft and will not hold up to heat.
My house is always cool no matter what time of the year it is. I plan to let this cake sit on my table as a centerpiece until it’s time to eat.
