can this recipe be made with white chocolate. I love the buttercream Dream recipe but I want a chocolate flavored icing without the chocolate color. Would I have to used the flavor oil?
Looks yummy... but I'm in the UK, our version of shortening is trex which has a hard almost crumbly consistency, would trex work? Or do I need to use something like Crisco? Also candy melts can be expensive, would either bars of chocolate chopped into small bits or maybe choc chips work? And what's chocolate lorann oil?
@lou2224 , it's going to be Crisco--shortening here is always smooth. :) Not sure about the melts, as I have only ever used cocoa, but Lorann oil is a brand of flavored oils. I believe they can be ordered on Amazon, but not sure about in the UK.
Lorann oils have a web site that you can order their products online. Just Google them to find website.
thank you for this - looks wonderful. I'm just interested. Why CLEAR vanilla since it's chocolate and one would like to use the real thing with beans, and why LorAnn (I use it for other flavours). Does this icing not have enough taste of chocolate? Just asking out of sheer interest. Have never used candy melts. Thanks again
