Hi! I am going to make a chocolate cake with a fudge filling (choc chips/can of sweetened condensed milk) and raspberry preserves, but I am unsure of what I should use to ice the whole cake with. I don't want it to be CRAZY sweet since the fillings will be already but I want the icing to compliment the cake/fillings of course. Any ideas?
chocolate ganache would be yummy and not too sweet. It can be poured on while warm, spread on when cool, or whipped for the consistency of a buttercream icing. Lots of recipes on here in the recipes section.
Thank you! My bf doesn't like the taste of ganache but I was thinking after I posted of maybe making a raspberry buttercream!
Whipped cream. (chocolate, or raspberry, or just plain vanilla!) It is MUCH less sweet than BC and would not compete with the rest of your flavors.
If she doesn't like the taste of ganache then how does she like the taste of fudge and chocolate? Ganache is just chocolate with cream. But I do understand not wanting overkill on the heavy chocolate - I think a raspberry BC would be delicious!
Thanks everyone! I went with the raspberry buttercream and they love it.
He doesn't like the taste of the ganache with semi sweet chocolate.
I make ganache with milk chocolate - very yummy!
I too make ganache with milk chocolate, delicious
