Question Chocolate Cake

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

What would be a good icing to decorate with on a chocolate cake ? Able to make a white color?

Yes, of course you can make it white! Just don't get crumbs mixed in, and don't apply it too thinly.

There are hundreds of icing recipes on here, from cream cheese to crisco, to butter, to whip cream, to pure chemicals. Home made and pre purchased.

What sort are you looking for?

Something that will go great with the chocolate cake and that will be great for piping.

Hmm... There are recipes that do it all, and taste vastly different. It all goes with chocolate! Lets see... Do you like grocery store cake icing? Or do you like it richer? Buttery-er? Do you want to smooth it with a paper towel or a hot spatula?

My favorite icing to put on chocolate cake is white wedding. The combination of flavors is so yummy!

That sounds good. Could you provide the recipe ?

I just use a basic buttercream and add almond extract to taste.

Grocery store icing with a big improvement would be
1 cup butter (room temp)
1 cup vegetable shortening
Whip those until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes
Then add 1/4 milk
Tablespoon clear vanilla
Teaspoon clear butter flavor
Half teaspoon (real) almond
Mix until combined well then add
2 pounds powdered sugar
Beat for 5-10 minutes until all light and fluffy. Scrape bowl often.
If you're using a hand mixer, add a couple more tablespoons milk before mixing.
