help, I would like suggestions for a recipe for chocolate icing for a wedding cake. I need it to be kinda darker in color, and easy to smoth....please help with some ideas......
I just use my regular buttercream recipe and substitute some Hershey's Special Dark chocolate cocoa for some of the P/S. Makes a really dark chocolate icing.
ditto, but I buy cocoa in 50 pound bags.
I like the Hershey's recipe from the can. Great chocolate flavor and easy to work with. Soft crust. Recipe is similar to many buttercreams, however, by melting the butter and mixing with cocoa, you get a great chocolate flavor.
and if it tastes good but needs to be darker, just add colouring!
Thanks eveyone for your suggestions......Think Ill try the dark chocolate...yummo
