Frosting for Chocolate Layer Cake

Pat Darnell | Feb 23, 2005 01:43 PM

I clipped a recipe out of a Bon Appetit (probably within the last year) for a Chocolate Layer Cake that is served at the Blue Smoke restaurant in NYC. I want to make the cake because I have read many positive comments on this particular cake. My problem is that I lost the second page of the clipping which describes how to make the frosting. I have the list of ingredients for the frosting, but no instructions. I need help on how these ingredients should be assembled to make the frosting. I searched Epicurious already and this recipe is not in there. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here's the list of ingredients:
6 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
3 Tbsp freshly brewed coffee, room temp.
3 Tbsp buttermilk
6 oz. bittersweet chocolate, chopped
3 oz. imported milk chocolate, chopped
(there is a space here between lists)
1 cup unsalted butter, room temp.
1/2 cup, plus 2 Tbsp powdered sugar, sifted
1 Tbsp vanilla extract

I would be happy to report results. TIA
