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.

And sobriety.
