Classic Chocolate Buttercream

Yields: 1 Serving Difficulty: Easy Prep Time: 10 Mins

This Classic Chocolate Buttercream is my go-to recipe for cakes and cupcakes! It’s light and smooth, with the perfect amount of sweetness.

This frosting holds well for stacking and decorating all kinds of baked goods! I use one recipe to lightly frost two 13-inch round cakes, like this Triple Chocolate Cake.
