Chocolate Cake- Part II

I am not quite sure what happened to the rest of the chocolate cake recipe- is there a limit to how long a post can be???  I hadn't even noticed until this morning, but the end of it seems to be missing! So, I'll just pick up where I (apparently) left off:

Meanwhile, prepare ganache filling.  Place one cake layer on serving plate.  Spread with 1/3 of filling.  Repeat layers two more times.  Top with remaining cake layer.  Prepare frosting and spread over cake.  Enjoy!

Ganache Filling:  Heat 3/4 cup heavy cream, 1 Tbs butter and 1 Tbs sugar to a boil; stir until sugar is dissolved.  Place 1 1/2  cups semisweet chocolate chips in medium bowl; pour cream mixture over chocolate and let stand 5 minutes.  Stir until smooth; let stand 15 minutes or until filling reaches desired consistency.

Easy Chocolate Frosting:  Beat 1/2 cup softened butter in large bowl with electric mixer at medium speed until creamy.  Add 4 cups powdered sugar and 3/4 cup cocoa alternately with 1/2 cup milk; beat until smooth.  Stir in 1 1 /2 teaspoons vanilla.

Sorry about the previous post being cut short!
