Chocolate Buttercream

Chocolate Buttercream

This Chocolate Buttercream recipe is a very easy cake filling,  for a birthday or wedding cake base.  This recipe is enough to fill and coat a 9 inch (23cms) round chocolate cake.

Always use the best ingredients for this, use pure cocoa powder , and butter not margerine, you will taste the difference.

You can soften the consistency of this buttercream by adding a little more water, I tend to do this for the outside, when I am adding a layer of sugarpaste on top.  It helps stop the cake crumbing up and pulling off the top layer.   However you musn´t add too much or you will curdle the buttercream.
