  2. I’ve been searching for an super dark and rich frosting for my granddaughters blackout cake, and voila here it is!! Thank you so much for sharing.

    • Hi Sherise, In addition to the melted chocolate, I would also add half the amount of cocoa powder. Since you will be adding more moisture to the recipe, you might need to also adjust the powdered sugar measurements.

  3. Hi Sheryl, looks delicious and can’t wait to try. My problem with frosting a cake is that the top of cake comes off. Not sure what I am doing wrong. Ideas? Thanks

    • Hi Jeri, I have a few ideas. 1. Your cake needs to be completely cooled. If it is the slightest bit warm it will start to melt the frosting. I always bake my layers in advance and freeze them. The cake layers are a lot easier to handle. 2. Your frosting could be too thin and not able to hold up the weight of a cake layer. Hope this helps! Happy Baking♥

  4. Hi I’m going to make these with your brownie cupcake recipe as Christmas gifts. How many cupcakes will this recipe frost. I want to pipe the frosting and make them look fancy 😘
