Chocolate Buttercream Icing

If you're looking for a chocolate buttercream icing that remains soft, creamy, and doesn't crust, this is it. I have used it numerous times for decorating all kinds of cakes, a lot of birthday cakes for the kids! One variance is regular cocoa powder vs. dutch process. It will work either way, just depends on your preference. This icing is great for making borders and flowers like roses, sweet peas, and drop flowers.
