Hi Guys wondering if anyone of you kind people could help me out...Just had my first go at making choco buttercream,Was calm and confident Lol..made it exactly from the recipe...but it tastes really bitter..the recipe goes
4 ounces (120 grams) unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped
2/3 cup (150 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 1/3 cups (160 grams) confectioners (powdered or icing) sugar, sifted
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract....
Is it meant to taste this bitter?
Should i lesson the amount of chocolate?
So sorry for all these questions ...And thanx so much in advance
You could try a semi-sweet chocolate, since the unsweetend is too bitter for you...HTH
Whenever I make recipes that call for unsweetened or semi-sweet, I always use milk chocolate. I don't like the taste of the others. I have never had a problem when I substitute like that. HTH!
Just want to say a big thanx (cake evolution and sweetcakes777)
Tried the frosting with different chocolate and got exactly what i wanted...Yummy!
Took me a while to perfect my chocolate batter mix and did not want to spoil my cuppy"s with bitter tasting frosting..
Just going to kick back with a coffee and one of my cupcakes!
