I have already PM'd Serious_cakes about her recipe, but I have no idea if she's even online right now & I need help ASAP!! Here was my PM to S_C:
I am making your Choco BC recipe that I found in the recipe section & I have a couple of quick questions.
Do I have to use corn syrup? I just finished the batch, up to the point of adding all of the PS & the consistency is good for what I need. Do I Need to proceed with the rest of the recipe & add the corn syrup?
Also, do I need to refrigerate this? I am covering the cake today, but probably won't finish decorating it till tomorrow & it won't be eaten until Saturday.
I have made a different kind of Choco icing in the past & it turned to fudge when I refrigerated it. I don't want that to happen again.
If anyone else as used this recipe before or knows the answer to my questions, PLEASE!!! help.
Oh yeah, here's the link to the recipe that I am using.
impatienly self bumping.
there's gotta be someone on CC right now that can help!?
when your other recipe turned to fudge, was it when it was still cold or after it had warmed up a bit after being taken out of the fridge?
I usually add 1 or 2 tbsp of corn syrup. It does not seem to thin the icing, just gives it a little more pliability and makes it easier to spread.
Hope this helps, P
