If changing vanilla frosting to chocolate do I remove vanilla extract?

Hey I am hoping to get some help please.

I will be making the frosting recipe below, but converting to chocolate instead: (no oj in frosting, i will use water instead)
http://www.food.com/recipe/pumpkin-cr... scroll down to directions, step 6

I already know I can add 1/4 cup cocoa, I am simply curious if I need to remove the vanilla extract? I will also like to know if I can add in chocolate extract and what amount?
To give you some background info I am making this cupcake recipe below which the frosting will sit on top of : http://www.chow.com/recipes/10794-bas...
There will already be 1tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp chocolate extract in the cupcakes, I am curious how much more chocolate xtract I can add to the frosting and if I need to remove/reduce the vanilla?

Thank you guys very much!
