Best Chocolate Fudge Frosting

Posted by daprincessnora This chocolate fudge recipe is from pamela clark book from womens weekly series. What i most like about it that it doesnt require using kitchen aid machine or any other electric equipments, just simple and delicious results ! If you're a chocolate addict you have to try this recipe. Note: this is sweet recipe, i used it for topping and filling, but when filling i use very thin layer so the cake wont be too sweet, my experience of alternating thin layer of this fudge with a thin layer of caramil filling in my chocaholic cake it turns out to a... read more

All-Butter American Buttercream

Posted by ButRCream This has truly become my go-to recipe for frosting basic cakes and cupcakes when traditional American buttercream is requested – it has such a wonderful flavor and consistency and pipes like a dream for cupcakes! I've modified the flavor by adding melted white chocolate for white chocolate buttercream and strawberry puree for a lovely fresh strawberry buttercream – the possibilities are truly endless! Hope you all enjoy as much as I do! :)   Ingredients Amount Ingredient 4 Sticks unsalted butter, room temp 1 - 2lb... read more

Fluffy American Buttercream

Posted by BakingJeannie This is like a cross between the Swiss Meringue buttercream and the American buttercream. You may use poured fondant instead of the powdered sugar and egg white combination below. The buttercream is fluffy, does not crust but smooths perfectly. It's a variation of Mike's Buttercream. I have been using this recipe in place of my regular Swiss Meringue buttercream since in Florida the Cottage Law does not allow a meringue buttercream. It stands up well in the humidity (adding the Sweetex) and I can get it really smooth quickly. Just stick the... read more

Fluffy Crusting Buttercream

Posted by cbrosado This is a foolproof, very light and fluffy, smooth buttercream. It almost has a whipped icing texture, but holds it's form. I have never had to, but it can be made stiffer by adding powdered sugar or corn starch. It spreads super easy and crusts over nicely. This is definitely my favorite "go to" recipe. It is an all shortening recipe, but doesn't taste "greasy". It is not too sweet and the taste is amazing! It does not need to be refrigerated because the high sugar content acts as a preservative. Ingredients: AmountIngredient2 CupsShortening8... read more
