I would like to do a german choc turtle cake for hubby bday. what kind of icing would you use... I dont like eating crisco icing, it taste ok but I know what its made of. what do you think would go well with turtle cake. i had wanted to do a smooth icing, with a fondant bow to make it look like a bday parcel, but know I dont know
katiecake, I don't mean to be niave (it comes naturally, hahahaha), but what is Crisco made out of? Isn't it vegetable shortening??
Someone said it is made of Lard...I don't use shortening it, therefore I'm not worried about it..
How about either caramel icing or chocolate ganache?
I would probably cover it in fondant, or a chocolate ganache as PinkPanther suggested.
And Crisco is made of vegetable shortening, where as lard is pure animal fat.
Well, for a turtle cake I would use a caramel pecan icing. But to be honest with you, I don't use icing on my turtle cakes. I just put the caramel mixture between two layers of the cake.
Not to be rude, but, I just found out that in the process of making pwd sugar with cane sugar, they use bone char (?) to process it. EEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWW!
