AHello! I am making a chocolate cake with whipped semi sweet ganache filling and they want to have a chocolate frosting - that's not ganache. I usually use the chocolate syrup frosting but the cake will be covered in fondant and that's a soft frosting. The cake will not be refrigerated. Can anyone recommend a chocolate buttercream that will pair with this? Way too much chocolate for me!

Thank you

I usually beat in choc. ganache with vanilla buttercream to make a nice light chocolate buttercream. I've read people also use the Hersheys chocolate buttercream recipe.
