Hi All, I really did try to search the recipe's instead of doing a forum post, but I kept getting a "fatal error" I am looking for a really good, shiny chocolate frosting that is pipeable for cupcakes.. i am looking for a similar gloss to the picture here. Thanks for any help![/img]

Here is a link to one similar. Also it looks like ganache. Either one is great tasting and shiny. hth

That looks like ganache to me. I use Rose Levy Beranbaum's recipe in The Cake Bible. Here are some I just did with ganache:

Thank you! I dont exactly want ganache.. I know there are recipes where you can use cocoa powder/powdered sugar and melted chocolate so it isnt quite as thick... I just need to find the right one! I appreciate the replies & links.

The icing in this post might be what you're looking for:

I have to say...I made it once, a long time was good, but not great...
I attributed that to the cocoa recommended.
I've never loved anything I've made with either of Hershey's cocoas.

I always planned to try it again with another brand, but never got around to it.
