Super-Simple Chocolate Frosting
Recipe adapted from here.

50 g Unsweetened cocoa powder
60 g Icing sugar, sifted
75 g Heavy cream
75 g Unsalted butter, at room temperature
75 g Icing sugar, sifted
1 tsp vanilla extract



1. Sift and mix first two ingredients of the list into a bowl.
2. Bring the cream to a simmer on the stove or in the microwave, and whisk into the cocoa mixture.
3. At first the mixture will look grainy; continue whisking for a minute. You’ll see the lumps disappear as the sugar dissolves and the cocoa hydrates. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
4. Place the butter and 75 g sifted icing sugar in a large mixing bowl and beat until the mixture is smooth and fluffy. Beat in the vanilla.
5. With the mixer running on low speed, add the cocoa mixture a spoonful at a time until it’s all incorporated. Scrape the bowl, then beat at medium speed for one minute more.





Decorating Cupcakes
1. Add Chocolate frosting into a piping bag adapted with a 1M piping tip.
2. Squeeze the air out of the piping bag. Pipe a swirl on to each cupcake. Start at the centre of the cupcake, squeezing in a spiral motion, creating layers of frosting and working in toward the center.
3. Add some chocolate curls to garnish.
