I used the texas sheet cake recipe for the cake part and used a butter/confectioners sugar recipe similiar to this for the frosting. I added pink and blue icing coloring for the icing and added some cocoa for the chocolate. I have tried two different recipes for the frosting and I must say that I am about ready to give up.

I am very happy with the chocolate frosting. It is very thick. But the regular frosting is not thick enough. Yes I know, add more sugar. I did. That still wasn’t enough.

The cocoa powder is great to thicken it up but of course I can’t use that if I want to color the frosting. Maybe I need to find a white chocolate cocoa powder. LOL

Mmmmm….I love these chocolate ones! What recipe do you use for cupcake frosting?
