I'll have to try some heavy whipping cream the next time I make it. Whatever makes it even more fattening icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif My son's cake turned out really good...thanks for asking...I've got pictures on my phone...my digital camera is MISSING!!!..anyway..I will post some pic's when one of my kids teaches me how to get the photos from my phone onto the computer. icon_razz.gif

How much melted chocolate are you adding to Indydebi's BC? and what kind?

I add Baker's Unsweetened chocolate squares 6 ounces per batch...melted..and cooled..but still pourable. OMG...this makes the BEST chocolate buttercream. You do have to add extra milk (or half and half) but I add only a teaspoon at a time so that I'm careful not to add too much. It still crusts just the same as her original recipe and is just as easy to smooth.

Here's the link to the Whimsical Bakehouse website:

http://www.whimsicalbakehouse.com/bake/bake_detail_house_buttercream.html

I add 4 (or more) ounces of melted semi-sweet chocolate for chocolate buttercream.

Cutthecake... do you know if the Whimsical Bakehouse buttercream crusts?

I don't think it crusts as much as some other icings.

I think Toba Garrets is the best. Dutch cocoa and ganache. Yum!

Here is her recipe. I don't use meringue and it still crusts.
* 2 cups (1 pound or 454 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature
* 1/2 cup (115 grams) vegetable shortening
* 3 lbs (1.36 kilograms) 10X confectioners' sugar
* 1 cup (110 grams) Dutch processed cocoa powder
* 3 Tbsp meringue powder
* 1 tsp salt
* 5 fl oz (150 mililiter) chocolate liqueur (i.e., Godiva or another)
* 2 Tbsp milk
* 1 Tbsp pure vanilla extract
* 2 cups (1 pound or 454 gram) refrigerated Ganache

That's what I like about adding the chocolate to Indydebi's recipe..is because it still crusts the same and is just as easy to smooth as her icing without the chocolate added. I have used some other chocolate buttercreams but they weren't as "user friendly" as this recipe is. I just love the way her icing "performs". thumbs_up.gif

Agreed! Have y'all tried the recipe on the back of the Ghirardelli unsweetened cocoa can? I think it's simply amazing!
