DirectionsThis cake consists of a chocolate layer cake, white buttercream frosting, and chocolate ganache: The bats that decorate the cake are made from ribbon and floral wire.
Although I love the “supermarket shortcuts,” buttercream is the easiest frosting to make and is well worth the effort. Here’s the recipe:
In a medium bowl beat butter and vanilla until fluffy. Slowly add sugar, continually beating until it reaches the right consistency. If it seems too thick you can add milk, a few drops at a time. That’s all there is to it, and you can add chocolate or extracts or fruit—yum!!
