celebrate of sweetness..

celebrate of sweetness.. by Fitri D. // Rumah Manis
We get an invitation from our friend, Iranian-American couple this Sunday afternoon . My friend didn't say anything what kind of occasion is, she said, just want to be together with some friends who not seeing each others for long (well, I know every body are busy and has their own schedule, some time won't be match with others)  .Though is a good idea, since the weather 'kind' of nice , no rain, no snow.

As usual, I bake something to bring and share with others. And today, I'm not bragging but the chocolate butter cream I used for the cake is really kill me !! By *sweet* accident I end up at a very lovely Blog belong to a pretty lady,
Heather Wong - *go check her blog, you will amaze with her creations*

Anyway, let me copy the recipe of chocolate butter cream, in case you need to impress your guest or friends too.  Trust me, you wont regret !

The Scootabaker's Chocolate Buttercream
Recipe from The Scoot A Baker
*my cake is 3 layer - 8 inch round and the recipe is more than enough to frost about 36 cupcakes depending on how much buttercream you like on your cupcakes. *

20 ounces unsalted butter, softened
24 ounces confectioners sugar, sifted
18 ounces Belgian chocolate (high quality chocolate), chopped, melted & cooled
2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon instant coffee granules

1. Mix coffee granules w/ vanilla and whipping cream until coffee is dissolved. Set aside.

2. Beat butter until smooth, about a minute on high. Add sugar, beat on low then on high for about 2 minutes or until fluffy. Add coffee mix, and beat on low then high for another 2 minutes. Without scraping bowl down, pour melted chocolate over buttercream. Beat until just incorporated. Scrape down sides of bowl and beat on high for 10 seconds. You're done!
