Thanks for the recipe! I was looking for a white chocolate frosting recipe to use on cupcakes for a wedding. I made this recipe the day of and it worked great! The only thing I changed is I used hi-ratio shortening instead of Crisco. It has a nice taste. Not too sweet.
Made this a few weeks ago, it was great! My mom who despises white chocolate LOVED it! It crusts really well too, thanks :)
I really enjoyed this recipe a lot, and so have my customers, friends and family. The only thing I changed about the recipe was the type of chocolate I used. The Bakers brand white chocolate leaves the icing very yellow which is not good for someone who wants a bright white icing. I use the Ghiradelli brand white chocolate chips and it works just fine. I also changed the amount of shortening to 1/2 cup and added the remaining amount to the butter amount instead. It's a lot less greasy that way. and I use clear vanilla! but other than that it's great!
I just made this and it was delicious! It didn't crust that well, but it's probably because I'm in the UK and haven't found the best Crisco substitute. Everyone loved the icing! A total hit! Thank you
what is baking white chocolate
Made this today and did not like it at all. It was way to soft to decorate with and flavor was not very good.
Whats high ratio shortening???
Can this go under fondant? I usually use a SMBC as it is so firm out of the fridge to put the fondant on...
Would the Wilton white-white icing color brighten up this icing
Just made this the other day. I thought it was ok. Didn't have white chocolate so I used candy melts so that's probably why it was just ok! Should have gone to the store but I got lazy! I also didn't have any meringue powder so instead I added some raspberry cake filling and used it to fill my cake instead of ice it. It turned the icing a pretty light pink that tied into the accent color of the cake and with the addition of the filling it tasted pretty good too.
Question .. HELP!!! Would this be a good icing to use under fondant? Just a small 2 tier layered cake .. but the recipe sounded so good! Hope someone can get back to me :)
