Has anyone tried to make Sugarshack's buttercream recipe in a chocolate icing? Is it even possible? I have a great fudge chocolate icing, but it doesn't crust and I'm trying to find one that does.

If I wanted to try would I replace part of the sugar with cocoa or maybe replace some of the creamer with cocoa and melt it in the hot water first?

2.5 cups butter
2.5 cups shortening
splash vanilla
15 or so TBS coffee creamer liquid

cream that

dump in some cocoa and cream together ( I do not measure)


add 5 pounds PS and add more liquid if you need it, which you prob will.


crusts great.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

When you say "dump in some cocoa and cream do you mean the powdered coffee creamer or more liquid creamer?

dump in some cocoa and cream together ( I do not measure)

Is that the ratio for a 5 qt? Would you use 4 1/2 pds. of powdered sugar for a 4 1/2 qt?

Yes, I have a 4 1/2 qt and I use

2 cups Hi-Ratio Shortening
2 cups butter
4 lbs powdered sugar
Creamer liquid - about 1 1/4 cups plus until I get the right consistency
3 tablespoons of extract
Ccoa - about 1 - 2 cups depending how chocolatey you like it.
