    All this traditional buttercream frosting requires is a spoon—for mixing or for eating. This goes great on the Flowerpot Cakes Recipe Source: Relish Mag

      Very good frosting. I halved the recipe and it made enough for a fairly thick layer of frosting for 11 cupcakes. It does make a smaller batch than some frosting recipes. It was fluffy, chocolatey and delicious! I put the frosting on peanut butter cupcakes - yum!

      This was really tasty. It was easy to make, and we liked the way that it turned out so fluffy. It was great on a yellow cake. I think next time I might increase the recipe slightly so I could put it on a little thicker! The cake received many compliments. (My teenage daughter even asked if we could use this recipe for her birthday cake, and her birthday is 6 months away! )
