I am making a cake that is to be delivered in the morning and I have to use chocolate icing. I have tried the Wilton one that contains the m.powder and 3/4 cup cocoa, but I thought it tasted bad (just my opinion of course), I have also tried another choc. recipe that tastes fabulous but I can't get it to crust.

I need a sure fire recipe that not only tastes good, but will crust so I can smooth it with a paper towel.

Thanks in advance!!!!

I use Indydebi's recipe. To make it chocolate, I usually add one cup of cocoa powder and then put a little more milk than usual, or a couple of tablespoons of bourbon or amaretto. http://cakecentral.com/recipes/6992/indydebis-crisco-based-buttercream-icing

It crusts really well.

I found this one in the recipe section - Really chocolatey and crusts nicely. Everyone at work (my test tasting panel - LOL) loved it.
