My father’s birthday was over the weekend. I made the cake, as usual. This year, he wanted the chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. So, I made the MB cake and this time I used the called-for chocolate buttercream frosting recipe. And much like the cake, it’s stellar! The use of melted chocolate chips was a nice change from cocoa powder and it showed! Much better chocolate flavor in the frosting.
This frosting also spread much easier than the other buttercreams I’ve made. I think this cake combined with this frosting is the only chocolate combination I’ll ever need.
