L chose a chocolate cake with peanut butter filling and chocolate icing. I absolutely LOVE this recipe for chocolate frosting...it is easy, delicious, and always turns out nicely. It also makes a LOT, and I've been known to eat the left overs straight from the refrigerator...chocolaty, and melts in my mouth!
2 t vanilla
1/8 t salt
Using electric mixer, beat butter until fluffy, about 30 seconds. Turn mixer to low and add sugar 1 cup at a time, and cocoa, mix to combine. Beat in melted chocolate and increase speed to high, beating until pale and fluffy, about 1 minute. Reduce speed to med-lo and add milk, vanilla, and salt. Increase speed to high and beat until fluffy, 30 sec. more.
L had a wonderful time, as did the rest of us. It has been entirely too long since we got together with our friends...holidays and sick kids and life in general has kept us apart for a while. Thanks so much for coming out, everyone! We hope you enjoyed yourselves as much as we did!
