My husband, Doug, loved his chocolate groom's cake that was topped with this smooth, creamy frosting and accented with chocolate-covered strawberries. Some were made to look like tuxedos.

"Best ever Chocolate Butter Cream Frosting I ever had. Not too stiff, just perfectly creamy. Luscious!!!"

MY REVIEW

"My whole family absolutely loved this frosting! They just kept asking for more! Like other reviewers i cut the recipe in half, and it worked perfectly for a batch of cupcakes! Creamy melt in your mouth chocolate frosting! I have tried many recipes for chocolate icing, but this one is by FAR the best! I did add extra sugar, to thicken it up, making it the perfect amount of sweetness. Worked perfectly for a last minute recipe!"

MY REVIEW

"I've searched for years to find a chocolate frosting that I liked, that was chocolate-y and would decorate cakes and cupcakes and this one is the best I personally have ever made. This will be my go-to chocolate frosting from now on! I halved the recipe, and had enough to frost a double layer cake and about 18 cupcakes - which was fine with me, more chances to eat it! I also did add a bit of espresso powder to it and it was yummy that way too :)"
