Chocolate Fudge Icing – 5 types of chocolate cake icing
Chocolate icing is a weaknesses that I hope I share with the majority of you and this hub with five amazing recipes is about to prove it. Over the years I have collected many different kinds of chocolate and fudge icing recipes.
In fact every time I make chocolate cake its one of these five that I use to ice it with. Of course any combination of cocoa, milk, sugar and cream or butter will eventually come out in some form of chocolate but these are some pre fixed portions that make the results so much yummier.
There are some that I got from aunts and friends and some that I improvised on my own. Some people like their chocolate icing thinly set and some like it thick and gooey. I think you should be able to find one to your own personal taste in the five chocolate icing recipes that I share in this hub.
