I know this is a super old recipe so I'm wondering if there's a more up to date recipe? I need a good chocolate buttercream recipe for icing a layer cake! I have been baking for like 10 years and still yet to find my favourite buttercream recipe!

Hi Jemma, as different countries measure cups differently, how many ml in your cup? I'm from South Africa and over here 1cup = 250ml. Thanks, I love your videos!!!

Made this today to decorate my son's birthday cake and it turned out perfect <3 so well explained and easy to make and more than enough to cover the whole cake with some left over for some cupcakes tomorrow. Thank you so much Jemma <3 definitely subsribed for some more tips for future baking!

Invest in a kitchen scale America. Precise measurements are important to achieve her results. I switched over and get better results
