Hi All,

I am planning to make a chocolate cake for New Year's, and am not sure if the frosting I am considering will be able to be piped as a border around the top of the cake (too soft?  etc.).  I am pasting the recipe below.  The mixture is refrigerated until firm and then whipped.  I would appreciate any opinions--this is my first time piping frosting!  Thanks so much!

  • 2-1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 3 oz. (6 Tbs.) unsalted butter
  • 1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise and seeds scraped out
  • 6 oz. bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 6 oz. (2 cups) natural unsweetened cocoa powder; more for decorating
  • 1/2 cup Lyle’s Golden Syrup
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
