LOOKING for: Decorator Chocolate Frosting

Posted by bellamart (My Page) on

I am making cupcakes and am in desperate search of a chocolate frosting that can be piped up on each cupcake & will hold its shape. I want it to crust up enough to be able to hold a cherry on top without sinking inside the frosting or rolling down it. Any help is greatly appreciated!!

RE: LOOKING for: Decorator Chocolate Frosting

A tip that I learned from my Dad a long time ago. In making regular butter cream icing; add an unbeaten egg white and a pinch of cream of tartar. This will form a thin, delicate crust on your icing.

Or....there are the cooked icings, such as 7-Minute and White Mountain. Look them up in any cookbooks that you might have on hand....or, check your local library. Think melted chocolate chips or bittersweet can me mixed into these.

Here is a link that might be useful: Seven-Minute Frosting
