This frosting takes a little effort, but it's so good on a Gluten Free chocolate cupcake.
I think I liked the frosting better than the actual cupcake...which works out perfectly because my 3-year old doesn't to frosting, so we split it and I think I get the better end of the deal!
Pair this frosting with any chocolate cake or cupcake. This makes enough frosting for one cake or 24 cupcakes.
