I am making a wedding cake this weekend. The bride does NOT want fondant. She wants the grooms cake to be strawberry & have brown frosting. It's a cowboy boot. In order to get a good dark brown the only thing I can think of is a chocolate buttercream, but I don't know what that would taste like with the strawberry cake. Does anyone have any ideas? I don't want to make a vanilla or cream cheese icing and just color it brown as that would take a TON of mixing & generally doesn't turn out well. I was hoping someone could tell me if the chocolate & strawberry taste well together or give me another idea for a frosting. Thanks!
What about the Hershey's Chocolate Frosting on the back of the cocoa container? It is delicious! Goes great with Strawberry in my opinion.
What about a chocolate ganache, after it has set and thickened?
Chocolate and strawberry taste great together. Toba Garret has a great chocolate buttercream recipe using ganache in it. It taste wonderful. hth
I absolutely LOVE strawberry cake with chocolate frosting.
Icer, that sounds so good! Do you know where we can find the recipe? Thanks
Of course strawberry and chocolate go together! Have you never had a chocolate dipped strawberry??? Heaven!!
