Any suggestions for a yummy crusting chocolate buttercream icing recipe that you've tried and like a lot? I looked in the recipe section, and found the "crusting buttercream (faux fondant) 2." I would love a recipe that someone uses and loves- how is this one?
I just happen to have made a cake with chocolate buttercream...I am about to cover it with ganache....but the buttercream came out sooooooooo delicious....it's basically the Wilton recipe plus some...
1/2 cup butter
1/2 crisco......cream these together first then add:
1 lb. confectioners sugar
BUT instead of the vanilla extract...I added orange extract....
1 Tbls orange yummy extract
2 Tbls milk
a few Tbls (I used 3 squirts) corn syrup (Karo) ...add more or less depending on the consistency you want
The orange makes the chocolate just pop! It's really awesome and so easy! Have fun!
I just add 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of cocoa powder to regular butercream recipe.
I'm with gma1956........only I don't measure!!!! I love the smell of this icing too!
OOOooops!!! I forgot to tell you about the cocoa powder....about 3/4 cup is what I put in....sorry!!
I'll try them!
I basically use the Wilton Chocolate buttercream...but use all Butter Flavored Crisco!
