icon_smile.gif I have been using the Whimsical Bakehouse whipped buttercream icing a lot here lately......many are seeming to like it. I now need a chocolate buttercream that is really good........it doesn't have to be one which will get crusty....just needs to be delish! THANK YOU!!

I LOVE Martha Stewart's Recipe for chocolate buttercream. It does NOT crust, but who cares it's sooo good. thumbs_up.gif

I use a modified version of Martha Stewart's and it has a dark rich color that I really like. The tast is very rich and dark, too. My family loves it! It's on the Basket of Berries cake in my photos. As you can see, it can be used for piping. http://cakecentral.com/gallery/1878138

6 tbs Butter
6 tbs Vegetable Shortening
3 ½ cups Confectioners' Sugar
1 cup Cocoa Powder (dutch process is best)
2 tbs Meringue Powder
½ cup (prox) Milk, slightly warmer than room temperature
2 tsps vanilla (or almond, or raspberry, or orange, etc. )
