Hi I am Petra Cox with Mom's Apple Pie Bakery in Occoquan, Virginia and we are making a chocolate cake that's in the oven right now and now we have enough time to make a really good Chocolate Butter Cream Frosting to ice our cake with when it has done baking. For a butter cream, I basically start with a pound of butter, and it has to be nice and soft, so it is a workable consistency and then I have also just a bowl of Confectioners Sugar, just powdered sugar here. You can find that at any grocery store and what I like to do is just add half a cup at a time into the butter while it is mixing, until the consistency is of nice, spreadable yet firm because this is for icing the cake. I also like to put about a teaspoon of salt and around two teaspoons of real vanilla in that too. We're going to melt the chocolate and add that into the icing after we have achieved a nice consistency. So, let's get started.
