|Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting|
I searched around for a good chocolate cream cheese frosting but in the end I decided to whip up my own concoction, and it worked very well! Below you will find the recipe I used for the frosting! For the cake, I went for the age old legend Martha Stewart's Devils Food Cake. For the peanut butter piping and center, I resided back to my Peanut Butter Chocolate Cake for the recipe.
Each element of the cake made for a scrumptious birthday treat. It also made me realise that buttercream's are a subjective matter, as there is no initial baking (or science) involved you can literally whip to your taste's desire! What a revelation.
