Chocolate Buttercream Frosting that is so perfect you can eat it with a spoon or be even more civilized and use it to top your favorite cupcake or cake.

Milk Chocolate Buttercream Frosting recipe is that so fabulous! This is the best recipe to frost your cupcake or cake

It is time for another Recipe Retake here on MKE as I take the time to repent for past photography sins.  I’ve learned so much over my 8 years of blogging, but at the top of that list is my understanding of the requirement of great lighting.  For example, here is the original picture I used for this killer recipe:

I hate when I go back and see that my photos just don’t do the amazing recipe any favors.  This chocolate buttercream recipe is honest THE BEST you will ever have so I wanted to be sure to give it the photo credit it deserves.

This recipe is light, perfectly milk chocolatey and not overly sweet.  You thought I was joking about eating it with a spoon, but it is honestly THAT good.  If you stick it in a pastry bag fitted with my favorite cake decorating tip, you can make your cupcakes look even better than ones from the bakery.
