6. Fudge Frosting.

Myrna :rose:

Those of you who are into cake decorating, think of the beautiful icing designs when we think of cake. Icing is the finishing touch on cakes, cookies, and cupcakes. There are several different types of icing used in cake decorating. The choice of icing while cake decorating, will have a great deal to do with how the decorated cake will look.

1. Buttercream Icing: Buttercream is the icing that is used the most in cake decorating. This is the same type of frosting that we can buy readymade in the grocery store. This icing is easy to use and easy to make. The ingredients are confectioners sugar, and butter or shortening. What you use to thin the frosting will differ with the icing texture you need to work with, to determine whether to use eggs or milk. Take care when thinning the frosting, remember, a little milk goes a long way. If you find the frosting is too thin, you can add a bit of confectioners sugar to thicken it.

To assure an even finish on your frosting, dip the icing spatula in cold water to make the surface smooth. This will give a smoother finish for writing. Buttercream is used to create flowers and other decorations made with a pastry bag. The icing needs to be the right consistency to make flower petals or writing. When you make roses out of icing, you can freeze them and add them to the cake later. This will make them easier to handle.

Buttercream can be stored in the refrigerator without getting hard. Make sure it is back to room temperature before you attempt to use it.

2. Foam Icing: This is a meringue and is used on lemon pie or Baked Alaska. This frosting is made of egg whites beaten into stiff peaks. It is possible to add flavoring and color to the meringue. You will not be able to use this icing for intricate cake decorating, and you won’t be able to use an icing bag with this icing. This icing is used when you want the cake to look fluffy, with little ornate decoration.

3. Fondant: This icing is very popular with those who decorate wedding cakes, and cakes for very special occasions. The ingredients are simply powdered sugar, water, cream of tartar, or glucose. Fondant is thick and doughy, with a silky, smooth, texture. Fondant will give the cake a flawless surface, and soft, rounded edges. Working with fondant is an art and will take practice to get it right. Fondant has a translucent quality, and will work best when placed on the cake over a thin layer of buttercream frosting.

4. Fudge Icing: Fudge icing is made from chocolate, peanut butter, almond, or mint. This icing is quite thick and contains both shortening and butter.

5. Glazes: This frosting is thin and watery, and will harden into a shell after it is placed on the cake. This frosting is mostly used on pastries. Glazes help to keep the pastry moist.

2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, room temperature
4 ounces unsalted butter, room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted

Garnish:
1 cup toasted coconut *
Pecan or walnuts halves

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
Grease 3 (9-inch) cake pans.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter, shortening, and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add the egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt.
With the mixer on low speed, alternately add the flour mixture and buttermilk.

In another bowl, beat the egg whites until firm peaks form.
Gently fold the egg whites into the batter.
Fold in the coconut and pecans or walnuts.
Divide the batter among the 3 cake pans, about 2 cups per pan.
Bake for 25 minutes, until a tester comes out clean when inserted in the center of each cake.
Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes.
Turn the cakes out onto wire racks to finish cooling.

While the cakes are cooling, prepare the icing.
In a bowl of an electric mixer, combine the cream cheese, butter and vanilla until smooth.

Stack the cake layers with a layer of icing between each layer. (See tip below)

Tip for frosting a layer cake:
To begin frosting a layer cake, place the bottom layer on the serving plate.
Place small strips of waxed paper under the edges of the cake to keep the serving plate clean during frosting.
Remove the strips after you finish all your cake decorating.

recipe difficulty 3/5 Difficulty:   3 (1=easiest :: hardest=5)

Serves/Makes:   16

Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup butter

2 cups white sugar

4 eggs

1 cup buttermilk

4 1/2 squares unsweetened chocolate — (1 ounce size)

1/2 cup boiling water

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon lemon juice

***Caramel Filling***

1 1/8 cup butter

3 cups confectioners’ sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon lemon juice

2 cups superfine sugar

1 cup milk

Turn this recipe into a puzzle!

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour four 8-inch round cake pans.

Mix the flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time. Alternately beat in flour mixture and buttermilk until smooth.

Place unsweetened chocolate in a small bowl. Pour the boiling water over the chocolate, and stir until melted. Mix chocolate, vanilla, and lemon juice into the buttermilk batter. Divide batter evenly into the prepared cake pans. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pans, then turn out onto wire racks to cool completely.

Caramel Filling: Mix the butter, confectioners’ sugar, vanilla, lemon juice, superfine sugar, and milk in a heavy saucepan. Stirring constantly, bring to a boil, and cook until temperature reaches 225 degrees F (110 degrees C) on a candy thermometer.

Remove saucepan from heat, and set in a large bowl filled with ice water.

Beat filling with an electric mixer until spreadable. At first this seems to be just hot, hard work, but the filling will suddenly start to thicken as it begins to cool. Transfer filling to a clean bowl, and it will continue to cool as you frost the top of each cake layer. Stack the frosted layers atop each other.
