The Chocolate Decorator's Buttercream in the recipe section is a good one. Yes, you will need to put chocolate (or other) icing on before you put on the fondant.

I do regular buttercream then add 2/3 cup of powdered cocoa. Plus I add a good 1/3-1/2 cup of chocolate syrup. It's really yummy.

I haven't tried this myself yet but I love the BCD:


Serves/Yields:
Prep. Time: 7-10 min
Cook Time:
Category: Frostings
Difficulty: Easy


I used my buttercream dream icing recipe to create a chocolate buttercream icing. I didn't like chocolate buttercream with cocoa added b/c of the grainy taste/texture. So I used chocolate candy melts and it tastes so much better than using cocoa.

1 stick butter (unsalted)
1 stick butter (salted)
1 cup shortening
2lb bag of confectioner's sugar
3 teaspoons of clear vanilla extract
5-6 tablespoons of milk (cold)
1lb bag of milk chocolate candy melts
Chocolate lorann oil

Cream butter and shortening. Add clear vanilla extract then add confectioner's sugar. Allow confectioner's sugar to blend well then add milk. For thinner consistency, add more than 6 tablespoons of milk.

After icing recipe is well blended, slowly add melted chocolate to the buttercream icing while your mixer is running. Then I usually add two caps of the chocolate lorann oil.

If mixture doesn't look brown enough or look like chocolate, add 1-2 drops of color paste. I used Americolor chocolate color paste.

Shanon that's basically what I do - the chocolate syrup... and mine needs more liquid to it as it is... so I think I'll start doing this! Thanks for that info icon_wink.gif

Also I use my basic butter cream recipe (see my profile then my recipes) and add 1/4-2/3 cup Hershey's Cocoa Powder to it... plus a little extra liquid and from now on I'm going to be using chocolate syrup lol

I used the Wilton chocolate buttercream recipe a few months ago for the "red and white wedding cake" in my pictures. I did add cherry kool-aid to it and red coloring, but the icing was delicious. It tasted like chocolate covered cherries.

Here is the recipe for the chocolate buttercream:

1/2 cup vegetable shortening

1/2 cup butter

1 tsp clear vanilla extract

1 lb sifted powdered sugar

2 TBSP milk

Then to make chocolate add:

3/4 cup cocoa powder for baking or 3 oz unsweetened chocolate squares for baking (melted)

additional 1-2 TBSP milk as needed

Hope that helps icon_wink.gif

You really have to try it. I tried it just because it wasn't quite chocolatey enough for my taste. So I went to squirting the chocolate syrup and it worked really well. I figure there's no such thing as too much chocolate! icon_biggrin.gif

You might want to make that 2 batches. If you are anything like me then you'll be eating it by the spoonful. icon_wink.gif

I really like the chocolate syrup frosting recipe - it is nice and dark brown.

I don't even usually care for chocolate frosting (yeah, I know that is a little weird) but this one is good.

The easiest way to make a chocolate buttercream (as I tell my students) is to add 1/2 to 3/4 Cup unsweetened cocoa powder to your favorite white buttercream recipe. Just make sure it's a good recipe and great chocolate and you should be just fine. Also remember that it will darken over time. Hope that helps some! icon_biggrin.gif
