The icing is the most important part of a cake or cupcake if you ask me. It could be the most delicious cake ever, but if the icing isn't good, I don't like it. It is so super easy to make a perfect buttercream icing, and it is so much more delicious than store bought. 

This chocolate buttercream is smooth, sweet, and it holds it's shape nicely for piping. The way I make icing is to whip my butter until its light and fluffy, then I add powdered sugar (and in this case cocoa powder) until it is thick and pasty, and then I add milk until it is the perfect, spreadable consistency. Using this method, I have never had any issues with my icing, it turns out perfectly every time.
