  1. Heyyyy everybody,

    Since it seems that my aunt has no clue what to do for my Cousin's birthday party...it seems that I have been planing the whole thing...(*SARCASTIC* Noooo, I'm not bitter or annoyed..:push:smile: Either way.

    I'm thinking that it would be fun for Nicole and her friends to decorate their cupcakes with frosting and maybe put some M&Ms and little candy confetti things on there before they eat them. Since we live in Germany, I don't have any way to get that great frosting in a can (Mmmmmm :drool:) that you can get in the US.

    Does anybody have a good recipe for home made chocolate frosting? I have found a few online, but I'm hesitant to try them since I don't know how they will come out and we don't really have a lot of time before her birthday.

    Anybody think that decorating is a good idea for a bunch of 4 year old girls? IDK, to me it sounds fun!

    So...Anybody got a good recipe for Chocolate Frosting??? :biggrin:
     
  2. Hi there,
    This one is by far the easiest I've ever used:

    It's called 1 minute Chocolate Frosting -

    1 cup sugar
    1/4 cup cocoa
    1/4 cup butter
    1/4 cup milk
    1 teaspoon vanilla

    Mix together. Bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute. Add vanilla. Cool partially, then beat.

    Best of luck with the party - it really sounds like the children will enjoy it. Heck, I'd enjoy it :drool: Mmmmmmm cupcakes!!
     
  3. Thanks!! That sounds really good :biggrin:

    Should the Cocoa be unsweetened (like Hershey's for Baking) or should it be sweetened (like for hot cocoa)?

    Sounds very easy to make :biggrin:
