Just this weekend, I made this assorted cupcakes: vanilla cupcakes with chocolate ganache and chocolate cupcakes with buttercream. Let’s have a look on the icings used for the cupcakes. This is like Icing 101 🙂
Chocolate Ganache is a mixture of rich, dark chocolate with heavy cream. It’s smooth and thick and can be used as filling or icing. Chocolate lovers will surely enjoy this.
Buttercream icing is egg-free and contains more unsalted butter than powdered sugar. Hence, the name butter 😛 The ingredients are whipped until it reaches the right consistency to be piped onto cupcakes. It can be mixed with colors except for chocolate-flavored buttercream icing.
