Re: How do you make really great chocolate frosting?

This is from a good friend who is a cakemaker...I love it! If I have extra I stick it in a Ziploc and put it in the fridge, when I need to use it, I let it sit out till I can smoosh it around easily...

Super simple (and delicious!) buttercream recipe:
2 sticks unsalted butter - put these in mixer first, best using the blade attachment - whip to death, it will be very light in color & fluffy!
turn down mixer to low & add 2.5 cups confectioners' sugar - once it is all incorporated turn up the speed again & let it whip like crazy.
Add 1 tsp vanilla or whatever flavor extract you want to use (almond is more intense so use less of this)
stream in about 2 tbsp heavy cream & whip until you reach desired consistency. It should be light & fluffy but firm.
Now you can take it in batches & make the colors you'll need stirring in food coloring.
