I have a question about a cupcake topping I experienced today and I wondered if anyone had any ideas what it might have been - it had the look of a thick buttercream, but it was pliable and could be moulded without making a mess and had obviously been piped on to the cupcake.  It had a mint flavour and stronger/ firmer texture than buttercream.  Any idea what it could have been made of?

Really old buttercream? haha.


I tasted a shortening 'buttercream' awhile back. Just shortening, flavouring and tons of icing sugar. It was super thick, sort of a nondescript taste, except for the lemon flavouring they had added.

I didn't try to mold it, lol, but it seemed thick enough that you could have.

Could it have been something like that?

Gosh it sounds odd !  Although I DO make a choc truffle topping for my cuppies that can be piped, and that is quite firm when it sets up, almost like a soft fudge.  I wonder if they used some form of melted choc in the mix ? Hmmmm .... xx

AIt tasted very nice, although thick, might have been a fudge type mix, but it was green, is that possible as I've only seen fudge recipes with chocolate?

Not sure - maybe it's possible to make a white choc fudge?


Anyway, you're going to have to go back and buy another and just ASK what type of topping it is, because we're dying to know, now! LOL!!!

AOk, thanks for your replies, it was apparently a mint fudge and buttercream topping!
