New edition EDC - chocolate frosting review - pg. 52
« on: October 06, 2013, 12:30:40 am »
Very Ordinary  :-\



Sorry, I think the cuteness of the ovens disguised the disappointment of this icing  :P

I used dark chocolate as stated, but it didn't taste chocolatey at all, it was a pale brown colour & the consistency was horrible for piping!
I had to add cocoa & some hot water to make it taste & look like choc icing....then, it would be ok to ice with a hot pallete knife, but definitely not to pipe.
It also dries crusty & does not stay soft.

.....still searching for that perfect TM choc icing  ;)

What a pity maddy.  When you find it perhaps you can share it with HO and they can amend this recipe.  It certainly do not look up to your usual high standard that we have come to expect. The boxes are cute though  ;)
