help i try making chocolate buttercream, but when i squeeze it on the cupcake at first it was beatiful than it started to sink. what did i do wrong and how can i fix it, aslo the color wasent as dark as i wanted it to be how can i make it darker? thank
It sounds like there might not be enough sugar in the icing, or it might be too warm.
thanks i will try that
Some people add brown coloring to there chocolate BC to give it a darker look. I am still trying to get mine to look like the tub of Wilton chocolate BC, its a nice shade!!!
If your BC recipe calls for cocoa try using Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa. It's really great for a nice dark chocolate color. I use this ratio when making brownies - 6 T. cocoa to 2 T. melted shortening. I'm sure you could add it to your BC. You could double it if needed. I haven't had good luck with brown food color. Good luck to you!
thanks everyone. so i try adding more cocoa. heres the result
