I have just made a heart shaped cake and I need to cover it with fondant. I bought ready made chocolate fudge frosting from Betty Crocker but when I tasted it, it was too sweet and tasted like dark chocolate (which I hate) any ideas on how I can improve this? or something else I can use?
to me the point is how will it taste with your cake -- it won't be eaten alone right? so what kind of cake did you make?
but to tame down the chocolatey-ness you can add some milk or butternilk and then add some cornstarch to blanance olut the extra liquid -- if you do the buttermilk it will reduce the sweetness a bit too
Thank you for your reply :) Its a chocolate cake and i think there's going to be too much chocolate and sugar
sorry it won't let me edit
make white icing
you could also add cream cheese to the chocolate but then you need to keep it in the refrigerator --
please lemme know how it goes -- best to you
