sounds yummy - can't wait to try it!
I haven't tried anything but plain buttercream, does this need to be refrigerated?
does it taste a lot like cream cheese or is it more sweet? Ive been looking for a great chocolate cream cheese frosting/filling recipe.
does this have to be refrigerated?
Can you pipe this like regular buttercream icing?
just tried this receipe...very disappointed. I followed the instructions exactly but the tast is too cocoa. Don't know if the 1 cup is a misprint or what happened. It tasted almost like straight cocoa. I kept adding more powdered sugar even added some vanilla flavoring and some sour cream to bring down the cocoa flavor, finally gave up and threw it out. Now back to looking for a good "not so sweet or chocolatey tasting" frostin....
Any updates on the recipe? Is the amount of cocoa powder to much? It would be nice if the original OP would pay attention to what they have posted and follow up on the questions!
So I tried this recipe with the following modifications: I used a scant 1/2 cup of cocoa (more like 1/4 plus 1/8 cup) I used 1/4 tsp of powdered espresso I used about 2 TBSP heavy cream The result was a really yummy mousse like filling that I paired with mini chocolate chips to fill the layers of a WASC Marble cake (found the recipe here and it is so yummy) There is a tangy quality to this buttercream, but it doesn't taste too much like cream cheese. I would refrigerate it as it is a very soft consistency and I do not think it would hold up as a icing. Wonderful as filling! Hope this helps!
