Chocolate and Amaretto Frosting

Chocolate FrostingI made up this frosting concoction to go with my fabulous Amaretto & Chocolate Cake (Link) its so simple, tasty but truly very sickly.

I made this cake on a hot day, so I needed to pop it in the fridge as the frosting started to melt and the cake went a little lopsided – easily fixed by straightening it up then popping it in the fridge if this does happen.

This Recipe makes enough to coat the whole of a cake and to fill the centre.


  • 125g Butter
  • 400g Icing sugar
  • 3 Tbs Coco powder
  • 3 Tbs Almond milk
  • 2 Tbs Amaretto


  1. Mix all ingredients bar milk in a bowl
  2. Add Milk spoonful at a time to achieve the consistency that makes firm peaks.
