This is a yummy, chocolate icing which is perfect for cupcakes and cakes. The best icing out there


  • Makes enough to frost 12 cupcakes
  • 300g icing sugar, sifted
  • 100g unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 40g cocoa powder, sifted
  • 40ml milk
  • Few squares of Cadbury's milk chocolate, melted
  • If you are making a medium to large cake, simply double the quantity!


  • STEP 1
    Beat the icing sugar, butter and cocoa powder together in freestanding electric mixer (Or use a handheld electric whisk) on medium/slow speed until the mixture comes together and is well mixed.
  • STEP 2
    Turn the mixer down to a slower speed. Add the milk to the butter mixture a couple of tablespoons at a time.
  • STEP 3
    When the milk has been incorporated, add the melted chocolate.
  • STEP 4
    Once all the chocolate has been combined, turn the mixer up to a high speed
  • STEP 5
    Continue beating for about 5 minutes, until it is light and fluffy. The longer the frosting is beaten, the lighter and fluffier it becomes!
  • STEP 6
    Spread on anything and enjoy!!!!!!! :D
