A few days ago, I posted a video of my son Donavan helping make a chocolate cake he dreamed up…Chocolate S’mores Cake. In Part-2, (link below) we assemble the cake with a delicious marshmallow buttercream icing, chocolate ganache, gram crackers and mini-marshmallows to finish.
I hope you enjoy and below is my recipe for a simple and delicious marshmallow butter-cream icing.
Enjoy the bake!
Marshmallow Buttercream Icing
3 cups confectioners sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) softened butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbs milk
7 oz. jar of marshmallow cream
Beat the butter and slowly add the confectioners sugar, beat slowly until fully combined. It will be very stiff. Add vanilla and milk. Mix throughly and then add the marshmallow cream. Mix until combined.
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup of heavy cream
Heat the heavy cream until just steaming in a small saucepan. Place the semi-sweet chips in a bowl and then slowly pour the warm heavy cream over the chips. Lets stand for a couple minutes before stirring into a smooth texture.
