A very good friend had a birthday this past Thursday and when I asked her what she wanted – she said; “Yellow Cake with Chocolate Frosting”
This kind of stumped me because before then, I had never made Chocolate Frosting.
However, since she’s a good friend and I love a challenge I scoured Granny’s recipes, a couple of cookbooks and ze internets – whipped out my KitchenAid and got to work
In my mixer, I whipped butter until it was fluffy and pale gold and then I alternately added vanilla, evaporated milk and the cocoa/sugar mixture until it was all fully incorporated. I scraped the sides of the bowl frequently and kept whipping it until it reached the consistency that I wanted for piping; spooned the chocolate frosting of awesomeness into my piping bag (after the 4 yo, the 7 you and I all taste tested it, of course.)
and I frosted 22 cupcakes for a 32 year old, friend.
I have to tell y’all — I’m not really a chocolate frosting person but this — this chocolate frosting with the subtle undertones of cinnamon and the creamy richness from the evaporated milk and real cocoa – ZOMG!!!!
