Super-Simple Chocolate Frosting
A great chocolate frosting should taste intensely of chocolate, be easy to put together, spread smoothly over a tender cake without tearing it, and hold its shape when piped through a pastry bag. This frosting has all of those characteristics. We made it with both natural and Dutch-process cocoa, and the natural cocoa was the hands-down winner for flavor.
Our guarantee: This frosting will have deep chocolate flavor, hold its shape enough to be piped, and be simple to put together.
