I found a chocolate fudge cake mix in the pantry today, and decided I really needed to bake it, like now.
Of course, I didn't want the can of frosting that was in the pantry, so I started scouring the web looking for a good buttercream recipe.
This one on Smitten Kitchen fit the bill. One word of caution -- she makes a note to not get discouraged and keep at it, because it will come together. It takes a long time, much longer than typical frostings. But it is so, so worth it.
I'll be eating a big helping of chocolate cake with this frosting tonight, in honor of Deb of Smitten Kitchen, who has a bun in her oven, and a certain other food blogger I know currently housing a kumquat.
