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.
In a small bowl, mix together cocoa and icing sugar, set aside
Whip butter on high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes
Add sugar mixture to butter slowly, beating well after each addition
Once sugar is fully incorporated into the butter, add milk one tablespoon at a time until icing is smooth and soft consistency
Spread onto cake or pipe onto cupcakes
