Chocolate Butter Icing

This is an easy recipe but I thought it would be useful to have it separately. This makes enough icing to do the middle and top of a cake as long as you don't overdo either! This is really useful as you probably have everything you need in your cupboards and fridge.

CHOCOLATE BUTTER ICING

125g salted butter at room temperature
250g icing sugar
1 tbsp cocoa powder dissolved in 1 tbsp boiling water

It is really important that the butter is at room temperature or your arm is going to hurt and it's not going to blend together smoothly. You can use a mixer for this but frankly it'll take you longer to set it up and then wash it all than it will to make this by hand.

1. Beat together the butter, sugar and cocoa mix in a bowl with 1 tbsp boiling water.

2. When it's smooth, check the taste and then cover with clingfilm and chill until you want to use it.
