This made a wonderful chocolate frosting. Made for Fall PAC 2012.
This is a fantastic buttercream recipe. I didn't have shortening for my regular buttercream, so i went looking for an easy recipe that didn't contain it. Glad I did! This recipe is super easy and delicious. I used heavy cream instead of milk and subed cherry extract for the vanilla (adding just a touch more cherry). I also added 1 Tbs of the light corn syrup. I used a 1M tip to pipe swirls on mini cupcakes. It piped like a dream. I had enough frosting to pipe 24 minis and small swirls on 7 reg cupcakes. This is my new go-to frosting.
