    Every home baker, or even cook, should have a Classic Buttercream and Chocolate Frosting in their recipe box. From there, the additions of flavors are endless. Add lemon, mocha, raspberry or sprinkles for a fabulous Fun-fetti cake. Fresh fruit, food coloring, you get where I am going with this.

    I am also going to burst your bubble on the best frostings. Most of them use both butter and shortening.

    It sounds gross at first, but even your most beloved bakeries are using the same recipe, or some variation of it. It is one of those things that you just do, don’t overthink it and don’t ask too many questions.

    Then use your new favorite chocolate frosting on anything you please. Cookies, cakes, cupcakes.

    Or, if you are like me, keep a little container in the far depths of the fridge and grab a spoonful for yourself every once and awhile. I also enjoy raw cookie dough. Don’t judge. 🙂

    In fact, I combined my love of the two for Cookie Dough Stuffed Cupcakes!

    Cookie Dough Stuffed Cupcakes are vanilla cupcakes stuffed with edible cookie dough and topped with whipped chocolate frosting. You won't beleive how easy these are to make! #stuffedcupcakes #cookiedoughstuffedcupcakes www.savoryexperiments.com
