My bucket list includes a non-ganache chocolate frosting. My aim is for a child who cannot appreciate the richness of ganache. For some reason I had previously goofed on Bill’s buttercream because my chocolate hardened pretty quickly and I had chunks in the buttercream. But I braved last night and added melted chocolate 3 parts milk and one part 60% to neoclassic. It was delicious…but not seeming to be enough chocolate for me…So with knowledge of Bill’s, I added about 3 or 4 tablespoons of cocoa powder.
I think this buttercream is delicious anyway…I am thinking also that I need not use milk chocolate. I think I added the cocoa powder because the buttercream seemed too sweet. I will be giving Bill’s Buttercream and the Choc egg white buttercream a try soon.
This was for lunch (drove an hour) with a colleague - who had a slice and then confessed she should not have sweets. I told her to drink lots of water today and I will take the remainder of this 6” cake to the little girl for whom I am testing. It is delicious.
Oh yes, that is shaved chocolate on top. This is the DPC cake from RHC.
