Please help...I need choc. buttercream w/ a dark brown color - Page 2

post #16 of 23
granma_j I have to go get me some, now because it's dark chocolate does it have the dark chocolate bitter taste ? Or does it taste like the milk chocolate? Thanks

it does have a bitter taste, but when you mix it in the icing you can't notice it.

Try Toba Garrett's Chocolate Buttercream icing, www.epicurious.com, it is to die for and it is pretty dark. It has chocolate ganache and dutch processed cocoa in it, definitely worth the effort, the taste is phenomenal.

I just found some Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate Cocoa at Walmart the other day, you might try there if you have one close. Otherwise there are several places on line to order.

I just wanted to say thanks for everyone's help. I ended up using that Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate Cocoa and it worked very well. Wasn't the greatest to ice with, but I managed! Here is a picture of the cake. Thanks again...You guys Rock!!!!! thumbs_up.gif

Duncan Hines makes an icing "Dark Chocolate" in the can. It's really really dark. I used it for the bottom cake of my PIG cake in my gallery. It is almost black. Which is what I was going for.
