NOTES 11 October 2008: Made as cupcakes for Mike's birthday. Used chocolate frosting for honey chocolate chip cupcakes. Very good. Even Braedon ate the cake part. Made 2 1/2 dozen cupcakes with large scooper. 18 October 2008: Made 3 nine inch layers but treated individually. Froze one, decorated 2 as Halloween cakes (one for school, one for us). Used vanilla buttercream frosting, and decorated with candy corn and Halloween rubber duckies. Also, was short on cocoa powder so I added one melted unsweetened chocolate square. I think it was even better. 25 October 2008: Made as one large (i.e 12”) layer for Braedon's birthday party. Used only vanilla extract (no almond) as I wasn't sure if any of the kids had nut issues. Frosted with vanilla buttercream. It was a big hit.
Vanilla Buttercream Frosting
Mix all together until desired consistency (add more sugar if too runny, add more milk if too stiff)
I think I doubled the frosting recipe, and then also needed another 1/2 batch for the Pikachu & words
