I read the majority of the comments before i made them, some of which scared me, almost to the point of not trying it. However, with such high ratings, I figured it was successful for more people than it wasn't, so I went for it. A coworker had asked for a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, and I wanted something light. I followed the instructions to a T, with the exception of adding 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa with the sugar (I used granulated white), and the results were superb! I used my Kitchen-Aid stand-up mixer, and literally drizzled the chilled whipping cream into the bowl as it was mixing. It turned out to be the perfect consistency for frosting (not for decorating) - exactly as the poster said - and it wasn't too sweet. In a word, it was PERFECT! My niece, who hates frosting, tasted it and told me I could use it on all her cakes! I am still trying to find the perfect buttercream, but this is going to be my go-to frosting. Thanks for the recipe!!
