These Are My Dress Cakes

Bison B.C. are from Canada (British Columbia to be exact). They are part of this amazing Canadian Metal movement that has produced such brutal bands as 3 Inches of Blood, Despised Icon, and Deamon.
Bison B.C. are known for their riffs, which have been described as "
colossal" and "flowing like a mighty river into a sea of fuzzed out shredding."

But what do Bison B.C. have to say about themselves? Let's find out:
Crawling through the forest of time, we came to destroy your life - so you might rebuild it again with these ideals more in mind: rock, rock and more rock. So forget about your life for a moment and bang your fucking head.
Sounds like a plan!
To honor these Canadian champions of metal, I give you:

Bison B.C.: These Are My Dress Cakes

Metal Constituents:
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 6 oz unsweetened baking chocolate
  • 2 cups cake flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup buttermilk, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips

For the Vanilla Frosting:

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • mini chocolate chips

Merciless Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cupcake tin with papers and set aside.
  2. Cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer
  3. Add eggs one at a time, beating thoroughly after each
  4. Melt chocolate in microwave at 15 second intervals, stirring each time. Allow chocolate to cool to room temperature, then add to mixture
  5. Sift together cake flour and baking soda
  6. Mix together buttermilk and vanilla
  7. Alternately add flour mixture and buttermilk mixture in 3 additions (starting and ending with flour mixture)

  10. To make the vanilla frosting: Beat the butter in the bowl of an electric mixer at medium speed until creamy.
  11. Add the milk, vanilla, and 2 cups of powdered sugar. Beat at low speed until light and fluffy.

  13. Frost completely cooled cakes, and top with mini chocolate chips.
  14. Bring to your next Black Tie event.

I'm glad they taste like Cocoa Puffs and not Bison. Well done!
