Chocolate Frosting

A while ago I shared this chocolate cake with a buttercream frosting, my mum complained because she likes her chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. So I decided I would try it with chocolate frosting and its really good. Its a tossup what frosting I would choose to make it with the next time. Both frostings are so good.

  2. Great, the outside of the frosting just hardens a little.

  3. This looks delicious! I like a little hardening on my frosting - makes it even better. Thanks for sharing on A Well-Seasoned Life's Sweet Indulgences Sunday.
