in response to my other thread (vanilla fudge icing).

i am trying to find an icing which looks like the picture below. I’ve been told it is a ‘fudge icing’.

the icing is thick, can be peeled off the cake by hand to give you an idea of texture. It’s sweet but not overly sweet.

ive been told it’s a ‘fudge icing’ but not sure how I make this. Sandra smiley could you share the Wilton fudge icing recipe with me please.

also I’ve been told it can be made with oil instead of butter and has to be cooked. how would I substitute the butter out for oil in any fudge icing recipe.

thanks Vanilla Fudge Icing (Response)

I am so sorry that I forgot to attach the Wilton link to the other post.  It is there now and here it is again:

Well, obviously this frosting is not chocolate because it is not brown.  It could  have white chocolate (which is not really chocolate) in it.  The only icing of which I am familiar that can be pilled off is fondant, which can be made with chocolate or white chocolate added.  The picture does not look like fondant, however.  It looks like plain, ole American Buttercream.  I would just make an American Buttercream and call it good.  You could make Swiss Meringue Buttercream and add white chocolate, but it is not for beginners.  Here is Wilton's recipe:
