There is nothing better than a spoonful of Decadent Chocolate Frosting to add that oomph and bucketful of flavour to your cakes and cupcakes.

This recipe is a cross between a Ganache and Butter cream and the result is a super chocolaty – silky smooth frosting that holds its shape even in the peak summers of Delhi!

I use this to frost my Cupcakes that I sell and they are loved by all for their silky smoothness and the rich chocolate flavour that it offers.

Whip up this super easy Frosting and elevate your homemade cakes to store-bought goodness !

I would love to hear how your cakes turn out, so do share the pics!
