Vanilla Buttercream Frosting (from Sprinkles Cupcakes)

My Sister Got This Buttercream Frosting Off The Box Of A Sprinkles Cupcake Mix, Made Famous By Oprah. My Sister Said This Was Amazing. Update: I Have Finally Gotten Around To Making This Myself. I Will Say, That I Don't Like My Desserts Overly Sweet And. Though This Was Very Good, I Think I Would Probably Decrease The Amount Of Sugar For My Personal Taste. I'm Glad Everyone Else Has Liked It As-is, Though. :)

Here's What You Need: Flour, Dutch Processed Cocoa Powder, Salt, Baking Soda, Baking Powder, Stout, Vanilla Extract, Espresso Powder, Butter, Sugar, Eggs, Mayonnaise, Dark Chocolate, Butter, Vanilla Extract, Dutch Processed Cocoa Powder, Powdered Sugar, Milk, Fresh Fruit

Time: 1h20m

Yield: 12 servings

Number Of Ingredients: 19

  • Grease and line three 8-inch (20 cm) cake tins with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.
  • In a large glass measuring cup, combine the stout, vanilla, and espresso powder. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until it is light and fluffy, about 5 minutes, scraping down the sides occasionally to ensure all the ingredients are being evenly creamed together.
  • Beat in the eggs, one at a time, ensuring each egg is fully incorporated before adding the next.
  • Add the mayonnaise and beat until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  • Preheat oven to 325˚F (160˚C).
  • Alternate adding the prepared dry and wet ingredients to the batter. Starting with about ⅓ of the dry ingredients, beat until incorporated. Then add ⅓ of the liquid ingredients, mixing until the batter comes together. Continue until all the wet and dry ingredients have been incorporated.
  • Using a rubber scraper, fold the dark chocolate chunks into the batter.
  • Distribute the batter evenly between the 3 prepared cake tins.
  • Bake for about 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  • Place the cakes on a cooling rack and leave to cool for about 10-15 minutes, until the outside of the pan is cool enough to touch.
  • Once the cakes have cooled, loosen the edges using a butter knife. Then place a large plate over the tin and invert to release the cake from the pan. Remove the parchment paper from the bottom of the cake and slide the cake back onto the cooling rack to cool completely. Repeat for the remaining two layers.
  • While your cakes are cooling, prepare the buttercream.
  • In a large bowl, beat together the butter and vanilla.
  • Gradually add in the cocoa powder, powdered sugar, and milk, continuously beating until all the ingredients have been incorporated and the frosting is light and fluffy.
  • Frost and decorate to your liking.
  • Slice and serve.
  • Enjoy!

Indulge Yourself With This Ultimate Chocolate Cake Recipe That Is Beautifully Moist, Rich And Fudgy. Perfect For A Celebration Or An Afternoon Tea

Time: 2h10m

Yield: Cuts into 14 slices

Number Of Ingredients: 16

  • Heat the oven to 160C/fan 140C/gas 3. Butter and line a 20cm round cake tin (7.5cm deep).
  • Put 200g chopped dark chocolate in a medium pan with 200g butter.
  • Mix 1 tbsp instant coffee granules into 125ml cold water and pour into the pan.
  • Warm through over a low heat just until everything is melted - don't overheat. Or melt in the microwave for about 5 minutes, stirring halfway through.
  • Mix 85g self-raising flour, 85g plain flour, ¼ tsp bicarbonate of soda, 200g light muscovado sugar, 200g golden caster sugar and 25g cocoa powder, and squash out any lumps.
  • Beat 3 medium eggs with 75ml buttermilk.
  • Pour the melted chocolate mixture and the egg mixture into the flour mixture and stir everything to a smooth, quite runny consistency.
  • Pour this into the tin and bake for 1hr 25 - 1hr 30 mins. If you push a skewer into the centre it should come out clean and the top should feel firm (don't worry if it cracks a bit).
  • Leave to cool in the tin (don't worry if it dips slightly), then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Cut the cold cake horizontally into three.
  • To make the ganache, put 200g chopped dark chocolate in a bowl. Pour 300ml double cream into a pan, add 2 tbsp golden caster sugar and heat until it is about to boil.
  • Take off the heat and pour it over the chocolate. Stir until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth. Cool until it is a little thicker but still pourable.
  • Sandwich the layers together with just a little of the ganache. Pour the rest over the cake letting it fall down the sides and smooth over any gaps with a palette knife.
  • Decorate with 50g grated chocolate or 100g chocolate curls. The cake keeps moist and gooey for 3-4 days.
