My cousin's son was having a construction themed party so it was time to revamp a cake I made for my son at his own digger party a year and a half ago.
The cake was yellow and this was my first attempt at CHOCOLATE buttercream! Yum!
The chocolate buttercream turned out to be the perfect color for mud. When I originally made this cake for my son's 3rd birthday I used regular buttercream and added brown food coloring. I wasn't completely happy with the color. This is much richer looking and tasting!
