    Derf's Note:

    Glossy and rich--great for special occasion cakes, a little fussy to make but worth it, and can be made well ahead of use.

      Very nice icing which I made with white chocolate rather than dark chocolate. Tastes great. I live in the tropics which is a challenge for any icing - things just don't set. So next time I would omit the water. In a temperate climate [or at least a climate which isn't 30 deg C and 80+% humidity!] this should work well.

      This icing was great. Worked very well in my area. It wasn't too sweet or too messy. Excellent recipe.
