Perfect Chocolate Buttercream recipe?

  • m

Anybody have a perfect Chocolate Buttercream recipe to recommend?

Perfect, to me, would be foolproof (always thickens up), deep chocolate flavour and smooth, creamy texture (hate the grittiness of icing sugar).

I want to frost a three layer chocolate cake.

  1. I just made Rose Birnbaum's neoclassic butter cream from the cake bible. It was easy,tasty and very creamy and smooth and did I mention easy?

      Thanks for the recommendation, I have the Cake Bible but hadn't tried that recipe. Will try it.

      I find all her recipes very easy, you get to the end and think "Is that all I have to do?" Since I love the process of baking I sometimes find that a little bittersweet disappointing!
