I wanted to use this for my Chocolate Gingerbread cut-out cookies. However the icing was setting up too fast and forming a crust. So to adjust it for cookies I added 3/4 cup more powdered sugar 1 Tb more milk and 1/2 Tb butter. I was then able to frost all my cookies perfectly well and sprinkled them with clear sparking sugar crystals (please note the icing gets harder as the chocolate in it cools).
this is a great icing for frosting sugar cookies. It dries very quickly. I would not suggest using this for a cake or cupcakes as it would be too hard to spread such a large amt. of it. I loved the flavor as well. Used Ghiradelli unsweetened chocolate blocks. Perfect amt. of chocolate. thanks for the easy recipe.
the icing came out okay a little plastic in appearance and it sets a little too fast. I decided to add 30ml of cream and used a double boiler. the cream was used to smoothen out the graininess from the sugar and to increase fat content to delay setting and increase pourability
i didn't feel like going to the store for icing one night and had all the ingredients for this one so i gave it a try! turned out great and although like the others said it dries kinda fast but still was great for my cake.
Very good. I followed STARFLOWER's review on this recipe except I didn't add 3/4 cup more sugar I only added a bit more than a 1/4 cup because the mixture was way too thick for more. I kept the batter in a double boiler and kept it over the heat to keep it from crusting. Work fast is all I can say - but it comes out very very pretty. I used a pastry bag to make zig zags, and flower shapes and black and white cookies(used the "Butter Icing for Cookies", from Barbara) and used the "The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies" recipe on this site.
