Hello.  This is my 1st post on this forum.  I'd like to introduce myself.  My names Michael and I live in MN.  I just recently came across this site and got inspired to make our daughters 1st birthday cake in 3 weeks.

 

I'm looking for some help with a frosting recipe.

Something very basic.  Nothing fancy flavored.

 

I have minimal experience with baking.  But love it.  Its the cleanup I hate :p

 

I'm planning to make an 8" round 2 tier cake ( chocolate ).

But not sure what to do with the frosting.  In the past the frosting recipes Ive tried came from my Grandmas old vol 1 version 1 Betty Crocker cookbook.  And I have not had much success with them.

 

Can anyone help my out.

 

How about a simle basic recipe for a filling between the 2 tiers.

I've read a handful of buttercram frosting rcipes on the recipe page.  What do you think?

 

Also I does anyone have experience with a edibale screened image sheet on a cake.

 

I'd like to place 1 of these on her cake

Thanks in advance.  I look forward to your feedback and responses.
