MainRecipesCake | Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

   Chocolate Buttercream Frosting submitted by Mom Johnson
Just the right amount of sweetness and chocolate! I added about 1/3 cup cream instead of the 3-4 tablespoons.

Beat butter in a stand mixer on high speed for about 3 minutes or until creamy and lightened in color, scraping down the bowl as needed.
Add powdered sugar, cocoa powder, 3 T. cream, and vanilla.
Beat on low speed until sugar is incorporated, then increase to medium-high speed and beat for about 2-3 minutes, scraping down the bowl several times. Add additional cream ifs needed to thin the frosting. Makes enough for 12 cupcakes.
