This frosting is easy, creamy rich buttery and delicious - very yummy, I've used it to frost chocolate cakes for church potlucks and for my boyfriend's birthday and it never fails to receive rave reviews and many "Mmmmmmmms". It will very generously frost a 9x13 inch cake. I love it!

Very good! After reading that it was dry and hard to spread- i expected to use a little extra cream. I used almost 3 times the heavy cream from what the recipe said! Also- it EASILY frosted and filled a 9 inch round layer cake and i tend to use a LOT of frosting! I almost doubled it when it said it would only frost 12 cupcakes- glad I didn't. It made a lot!

This is fantastic butter cream! I finished the cake then spooned the left overs into my mouth - very yummy! Smooth, chocolatey and easy to work with for cake decorating. Not too sickly either.

This frosting tastes ok, but it was very hard to spread. It was too dry and was very difficult to spread on the cake. It actually lifted off the cake when I tried to spread evenly. More whipping cream may help.
