    Icing On The Cake

    Most of these frosting/filling recipes are ones that I've tried (some I intend to, as soon as I find the occasion to do so!). Usually I mix and match cakes and frosting; I seldom make the same combination again though I keep making the same recipes - love to imagine how the final product will taste like!

    A wonderful light, airy, and easy to make chocolate icing.

    Recipe #81988

    This was originally given to me as a cannoli filling and although I still use it for that purpose, it also makes a great cream puff or cake filling as well as just a delicious thick pudding. A very old recipe - origin unknown.

    Recipe #39522

    Found this recipe in 'The Perfect Cake' by Susan G. Purdy. I used it on RhondaJ's BEST EVER Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting (#67256), instead of the cream cheese frosting. It pairs wonderfully with the banana cake. Very rich, and it offsets the sweetness of the cake. This glaze sets with a fine gloss and holds up well in hot weather. The consistency is rather fudge-like - creamy and smooth. You must whisk in enough water in the beginning (all at once) to prevent chocolate from seizing. Cakes coated with this glaze can be frozen. This recipe makes enough to glaze one 9-inch 2 or 3 layer cake.

    Recipe #89594

    This recipe makes a delicious and creamy ganache filling, that's light as air, not too-intense and will definitely bring you to chocolate heaven! It's also very easy to make, can be made ahead and you will NOT regret it. The amount of chocolate used depends on the type of chocolate. Recipe makes enough to fill and frost a 3-layer cake. Recipe by Alice Medrich, the dark chocolate goddess.

    Recipe #106954

    This recipe is from Alice Medrich's Bittersweet. This recipe is quite easy, especially if you're not concerned about eating raw eggs (I've made this 3 times now, and I'm still here! LOL). The mousse is luscious and intense - the flavor of the chocolate is the star here so use the best quality that you can find. You may use this as a filling for cakes or tortes as well (enough for 2 thick layers of mousse for a 9" cake).

    Recipe #108505

    This is a favorite of my family's (especially my 16 year old--the only frosting she will ever make). It is in response to a request on the boards. If you are planning to use this on a chocolate cake, clear vanilla will produce a stark white frosting that contrasts beautifully with the chocolate. This is a light, fluffy frosting and doesn't over-power the flavor of any cake that you choose to top with it. My daughters also like to spread it on graham crackers for 'graham cracker sandwiches'.

    Recipe #55965

    Adopted! A fabulous buttercream that holds up well

    Recipe #45835

    From Baker's Dozen Cookbook. I used this to glaze Rich Chocolate Cake (under my recipe) and the glaze is unbelievably delicious with a shiny finish. Easy to prepare and it's perfect for a cake that does not require refrigeration (suitable for tropical weather such as Singapore). Serve frosted cake at room temperature. Use best quality chocolate for good results (i used Valrhona). The prep time is for the microwave method for preparing the glaze only (glazing cake not included). Yield is 1 1/2 cups which is perfect for a 9 inch cake.

    Recipe #88240

    The inspiration for the whipped cream came from Bon Appetit December 2002 issue. I've changed the measurements to my own taste. This whipped cream is delicious on anything with apples such as pie, cobbler and apple bread (see recipe 76946 for a great combo). Also would be nice on top of hot chocolate or coffee!
