Best chocolate cupcakes recipe

Onto the chocolate buttercream frosting:

So for this frosting you will need butter in room temperature, so put the butter from the fridge few hours before you will make frosting.

I also use powdered sugar, which make sweet taste and hold the cream together and whole milk. Plus use high quality vanila extract, because that make the vanilla taste even better.

I made this cream with hand mixer, but you must first mix butter and sugar by hand. Than after you beat the butter and sugar you can use hand mixer. If you have stand mixer. Make the cream in it.

Put into cream some cacao powder to get the chocolate flavor and be sure that you use high quality cacao powder for super delicious taste.
