What you need to know to prepare the fluffy, silken whipped cream of your dreams.
Ultimate Chocolate Frosting
Basic Vanilla Buttercream
Ask any pastry chef about frostings and they'll tell you that there's nothing like a good basic vanilla buttercream. This American-style vanilla buttercream from chef Billy Reece of Billy's Bakery in NYC requires just four ingredients and comes together in just about as many minutes. Smooth, fluffy, and creamy, it's ideal for all kinds of cakes, from cupcakes to multi-layered confections.
German Chocolate Bundt Cake
German chocolate cake is defined by its iconic coconut-pecan frosting; for this recipe, we've bucked tradition and tucked it inside of this Bundt cake instead. Here's the trick: Transfer the batter to the pan, then spoon on the gooey goodness—we used a small ice cream scoop for easy release and evenly distributed dollops. It settles into the middle while baking, so when you cut through that glossy ganache, a scrumptious surprise awaits.
