Brownies with Buttercream
Chocolate Brownies with Vanilla Buttercream
Sometimes a delicious, homemade, chewy brownie can solve the problems of the day. And sometimes they’re a celebration!
These beauties look like they’re on their way to a party. And why not? Preparing single-pan desserts for service to a crowd can help keep the mayhem to a manageable level.
If possible, when taking desserts to an event, consider pre-slicing the cake, brownie, fudge, etc. I’ve blogged about that at Peach Layer Cake for a Potluck.
I’m still dialing in my Brownie Recipe, but these are close. Do whatever works for you to get a pan of baked brownies on to your work table.
Let’s pick it up from there…
I also prepared a Test Kitchen Brownie with the portion I sliced from the end. It fits perfectly in my Homer Laughlin Fiesta Dinnerware Bread Tray and it makes for the most ideal skinny slice of brownie heaven.
Aw nuts! There’s a row of half-size brownies. Guess those’ll need to get eaten for ‘test bites.’
After mixing the Vanilla Buttercream, I divided it into fourths and tinted in four different complementary colors (it also happens that I had chocolate candies in these colors, too). The piping tip was a Wilton 1M Open Star.
Usually, when I’m finished decorating a baking project – I set it up for a photo shoot. But, in this case, the work-station look had more punch than what I put together.
It was… nice. But it didn’t wow me.
However, I am wowed by my life partner husband.
I am crazy about our people and the people they bring.
