I put too much chocolate in but it turned out ok and was nice on top of our cupcakes. - 04 Nov 2013
I've never been that good at buttercream until now. This has a great chocky flavour and is so easy to do. I did use good quality chocolate. keith - 19 May 2013
Nice flavour, but came out much paler than in the picture. perhaps needs more chocolate? - 20 Aug 2014
