So, what do you do when you’re snowed in? Yes, I’m referring to last week, on Wednesday when the snow was coming down like crazy. I had plenty to do, but I
needed wanted cake, cupcakes to be exact. Growing up, my favorite cake was yellow cake (from a box) and chocolate frosting (from a can)…super ambitious I know. So every now and then I kinda sorta really want to have yellow cake (from a box) and chocolate frosting (from a can). On this snowy day, there was no boxes of cake mix or cans of frosting in my pantry.
After scrounging up a basic yellow cupcake recipe – the fantastic part was that it only made 12, the perfect amount for a non-celebration kind of day – I didn’t have what I needed for a chocolate ganache. My next search was for simple chocolate frosting, Rachael Ray came through for me and one taste of this frosting took me back to the days of the frosting from a can. You know how it has a certain tang to it? This frosting has that same tang and I’m totally in love (a love that rivals my love for this Nutella Cloud Frosting). Sometimes it’s so refreshing to enjoy things like basic yellow cake with simple chocolate frosting…sprinkles not optional.
