Homemade Chocolate Frosting
I think that frosting is just as important to making a delicious cake as the cake recipe it’s self. This recipe for Homemade Chocolate Frosting is luscious. The chocolate flavor is excellent, the texture is smooth and soft. The recipe is extremely easy to make, it took me about 10 minutes to whip together.
The frosting literally glides across the surface of cake. The recipe makes two cups of frosting which was just enough to frost a 13×9 inch cake. You can half the recipe if your making a 9 inch cake. If you decide to make a layer cake, I’d either make one and half batches or double the recipe. You want enough to frost the inside layer,the sides and top.
Use a good cocoa, you want the chocolate flavor to be amazing. Homemade Chocolate Frosting has a rich chocolate flavor, your going to love how easy it is to make. Why buy prepackaged when you can make homemade. Enjoy!
