Vanilla Rum Buttercream Frosting

I used this cooked rum buttercream frosting flavoured with a bit of vanilla to frost the easy one-bowl chocolate cake that I made for my birthday. This recipe makes enough to frost a 9-inch, 2-layer cake.

To frost the cake, I filled the two-layer cake and then gave it a crumb coat with about half of the frosting recipe. Since the frosting is quite soft, I then popped the cake in the fridge to firm up for 30 minutes. After that, I covered the top and sides with the rest of the frosting and put it back in the fridge to chill before slicing into pieces.
