Hi everyone! :)

 

I have a question for anyone who has made a cooked frosting in the past.  I have made this recipe before: http://www.ourbestbites.com/2008/09/perfect-cupcake-frosting-and-filling/  and I really liked it.  What would happen if I added something like Nutella to it?  Would the consistency be ruined? 

 

Thanks!

What a nice recipe, and a beautiful website page.  I'm going to try that soon, as it's almost exactly like my old fashioned vanilla pudding recipe that is delicious.  And she gives a vegan option along with flavor varieties.

It's delicious! I tried several recipes and this is by far my favorite....

I added oreos to the vainilla flavor and used it as a filling for my cookies and cream cake.. Everyone loved it!

I've converted to this recipe recently. I love it, especially with vbp as a filling. I haven't tried any variations yet!

Here is some practice cakes that I did with cooked frosting. 

I used 6" dummy cake. I know, lines on ruffle cakes are not perfect straight, I am still practicing. 

Next time I need to try different butter, the frosting is kind of yellow.

Natka81 they look lovely and exactly the same as any other icing.   Here's a previous thread about the color you speak of.   It has some information that may be helpful.

Very neat cake, Danilou. Not so long ago I was baking 14" square cake and it took me 2.5 hours to smooth icing. 

I like this cooked frosting Buttercream, next week I will try adding Nutella to it.

This sounds tasty, I cant stand the taste of powdered sugar!  Has anyone tried using this recipe with hi ratio shortening instead of butter?  If not, I'm going to give it a shot in the next couple of days and see how it turns out.  I'll let you know :)

So, this week I practiced cooked frosting under fondant. But I practiced on a dummy cake, and I kept it refrigerated over night and 5 hours at room temp. ( 78 F, humidity 60% in house), 

Here it is after fridge and 5 hrs. at room temp

Fondant was sweating a lot but it dried up.

Then:

 

I doubled the recipe  and used half and half instead milk and heavy cream, and instead 4 stick of butter I used 3 sticks and 1/4 cup of Crisco and instead 2 cups of sugar I used 1 1/2 cup.

I left it at room temp on purpose for 4 hours. I did not notice it sliding off.

Normally I would  not keep this frosting at room temp. because it has milk product.

A@ natka81 Thank you for the info! I love the taste of this icing way better then ABC, but now I love it even more! You can color it, use it under fondant, as a filling ....

Just a note; She stated on the website comments that since the cream/milk mixture was heated and boiled, that she doesn't refrigerate and that the icing acts much better at room temp (Is she wrong!??)

I don`t know if it can stay at room temp for long and be safe to eat, personally, I wouldn`t keep it at room temp for long( maximum maybe 4-5 hrs.), just because it has milk. I like everything to be  refrigerated. I even put cake layer in fridge when I need them for tomorrow.

 

Of course this, icing has to be at room temp. to decorate, but I would still keep decorated cake in fridge.

 Please consider that I used dummy cakes for test, I haven`t used it on real cake ( I don`t know if it will make much difference). This icing is something new for me.
