Bookmark this page because this recipe is a staple every baker needs in their life. Sure, it is easy enough to buy a container of icing from the store, but those are LOADED with artificial ingredients. This chocolate buttercream frosting recipe contains only five ingredients…all you can actually name!
When it comes to food while camping, simplicity is everything. Lucky for you, this frosting stores extremely well. Make it ahead of time and bring it in a reusable container to spread when needed, or better yet, make the whole cake ahead of time! This frosting pairs up excellently with my yellow sheet cake.
If you’re like me, you’ll be licking the beaters once you’re done whipping up a batch of this chocolate buttercream frosting. It’s irresistible!
