Chocolate Cake with Buttercream Frosting and Edible Butterflies!!

This Recipe will give you such a decadent melt in your mouth Chocolate Cake. For the frosting I have used simple American Buttercream Frosting and Edible Butterflies. These butterflies are available on Amazon in case you are wondering. Please use Gel colors for that smooth shine that you can see in the frosting.

For the Cake:

  1. 1&1/2 cup Flour
  2. 2 Eggs at room temp
  3. 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  4. 1/2 cup drinking chocolate
  5. 1 cup Castor Sugar
  6. 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  7. 1 cup Buttermilk
  8. 1 tsp baking powder
  9. 1 tsp baking soda
  10. 1/2 cup Olive Oil
  11. pinch of salt

Preheat the oven at 360 degrees. In a separate bowl mix oil and sugar till the sugar blends in. Add in eggs one at at time and whisk. Add in Buttermilk and Vanilla.Sift all your dry ingredients in separate bowl. Add the dry ingredients into the wet ones and using a spatula just fold it in and using a hand whisk it one last time. Pour into 6 inch pan that is lined with oil and flour. Bake at 180 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes or till skewer comes clean.

Leave in the oven for 15 minutes then take it out and let it cool down on a rack.

For Frosting:

  • 2 slabs of butter.
  • 4 cups of Icing Sugar.
  • Vanilla Extract.

Using an electric beater beat in your butter and add in icing sugar one spoon at a time. If your icing is runny don’t worry just add in more sugar. I have used Green, Purple and Blue colors and used Wilton tips 1 M and 2 D.
