Hey! Took a break from cakes for a while - had some medical things. VERY excited to be back!! Doing a wedding cake and grooms cake in June YAY!!!
My question - has anyone ever used sugarshack's icing recipe and made it chocolate? Can you just add cocoa powder?? If so how much?
I'm sure all you would have to do is substitute some of the powdered sugar with cocoa powder. You could also melt some chocolate chips and maybe add them in with the shortening, but I havent' tried it.
I have a chocolate BC recipe, but I would like to know the exact measurements to make a chocolate version of Sugarshacks.
I doubt you would need exact measurements - you could just substitute cocoa powder for the powdered sugar to your taste. That's just what I would do anyways LOL. I'm no buttercream expert though.
I have made the sugarshacks icing chocolate and what I do is substitute 1 cup of the p.s. with 1 cup coco powder then add some melted chocolate in place of the hot coffee creamer it came out perfect. Good luck.
Mix the chocolate powder into the shortening mixture. This cuts down on the bitter taste. There is really no measurement, just to your liking.
