Cocoa Buttercream Frosting

Fudge Marble Cake with Cocoa Buttercream Frosting and Oreo Crumble 

Frosting recipe 2 out of 6 from my Tale of 12 Cakes week:

Chocolate goes amazingly well with chocolate. Who knew? I loved the look of the fudge marble on the inside, coated with the delicious and rich flavor of cocoa on the outside. And how fun this cake was with a ring of oreo crumble on the outside! This cake went pretty fast on Saturday.

For the top of the cake, I just used the back of a spoon and moved it back and forth. I really like that unkempt look (and it saved me time not trying to make the top perfectly flat)

Cocoa Buttercream Frosting

Ingredients: 
1 Cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
2/3 Cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3-6 Cups powdered sugar
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
2-4 Tablespoon heavy cream 
pinch of salt

Directions: 
1. With your stand mixer, beat the cold butter and cocoa powder until smooth. 
2. Add in vanilla extract, powdered sugar, and salt on medium speed until thoroughly combined. It should be stiff, this is when you add in the heavy cream until you reach your desired consistency.
