Chocolate Buttercream Recipe - Page 2

post #16 of 25
Mmmmmm that does sound good. I know I made a white chocolate mousse ganache and put some of it into a batch of regular buttercream icing and it was sooo good, and made it really smooth. (Yes, it does crust.) In fact I still have some left over that I need to use up.

Mouse- that sounds really good.

Are you able to share your white chocolate mousse ganache recipe?

Thanks, Mouse!! I'm a member over there, too... so I'll take a look.

Your welcome...I believe the recipe is on the right hand side near the bottom... my desktop pc at home is being stupid right now so I can't get her site to pull up for me to verify the position of the recipe. (I have some viruses I have to get rid of...)
**I saw that on one of your other posts that the white chocolate comes up kind of yellowish for you. I found that if you melt it with heavy whipping cream it is not as yellow- more like a very slight off-white.

This may sound silly, but I use the Wilton Chocolate buttercream recipe as well only instead of white milk I use chocolate milk (the kind that's already made in the cartons at the store). It seems to make it just a little richer - that is if I can keep the chocolate milk in the house long enough and away from my three kids and my husband!

I take my standard BC recipe and mix it with my standard ganache.

BC:

1.5 cups butter
1 cup shortening
2 T flavoring
2 (+/-) pounds powdered sugar

Ganache:

12 ounces semi sweet chocolate chips
12 ounces heavy (whipping) cream
1 T butter


After your ganache cools but is still workable, blend well with BC.


MomofThree - that doesn't sound silly at all. If that's what you like... I have never tried it. So who am I to say if it's any good or not?

Thanks Dawn! I will try it this week! The choclate BC icing cake I made for my daughters friend (I posted it) turned out too cocoaeeey LOL. I wanted to try a new one before I decide to use the CBC on the groom's cake~

So this recipe will be ok to basket weave ???

I've never done the basketweave with it... but I've done other things that would need a similar texture and stiffness.
