Hi All,
I usually make vanilla buttercream icing with my chocolate and decided to get a little bit more exciting. Does anyone have a really good flavor frosting recipe that I can use with chocolate cake instead?
Thanks

My favorite, and that of my family, is Choc. IMBC with a little coffee liquer in place of about a 1/4 of the vanilla. To make choc. I melt 1/2 semi sweet and 1/2 bittersweet choc. and when cooled a bit add to IMBC.

It all depends on what flavor you like to accompany your chocolate. My last chocolate cake had mint IMBC. It was AMAZING! Peanut butter is good too.
