Cake Frosting!

Cake frosting can add an excellent finish to a delicious cake. They can be shiny, matt or rough. A frosting for a cake can also provide a background for additional decorations to make your cake more appealing and decorative.

This cake frosting is simple, easy to make and does not take much time at all. To spread, this must be done while warm, and when it cold it stiffens to form a smooth coat for the cake. When made It can cover around 12 cup cakes or a sigle, 20 cm sponge cake.

it is very sweet, so if you have an already very sweet sponge I would suggest a different topping. It is versatile and can be used for almost anything. Once made and put on to cover it sets hard so any decorations to be added must be placed while still slightly runny. To bear in mind, when slightly runny, thicker areas of the frosting will run so it is best to smooth out evenly.

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 30 min
Yields: 12 Cup Cakes or 1, 20cm Sponge Cake

Ingredients

  • 100 grams Good Quality White Chocolate, Chopped
  • 1 heaped tablespoon Golden Syrup
  • 50 grams Unsalted Butter

How to make

  1. Chop the chocolate into small pieces, these do not have to be even but speeds up the melting process. It would be best to chop the butter into small cubes also to speed up the melting process.
  2. Place all the ingredients into a heat proof bowl. Place the bowl over a pan of steaming water. This can either be freshly boiled from the kettle and poured into a saucepan or boiled in the saucepan. If this is the case turn off the heat before placing the bowl over the top. Do not let the bottom of the bowl touch the water as this will cook the ingredients at the bottom and not melt them.
  3. Melt the contents of the bowl gently over the heat, stirring frequently with a wooden spoon.
  4. As soon as the mixture is melted and smooth coating evenly the back of a spoon, remove the bowl from the steam
  5. Cool the mixture and keep stirring frequently, this will stop it from seperating out. It is best to cool at room temperature placing the bowl on a heat proof surface.
  6. When the mixture has cooled to just before the setting point, it should appear very thick and slight creases appear on the surface before stirred. Swirl the frosting onto the cup cakes or cake using a round edged knife
  7. Add any other decoration to the frosting and leave to set

Things to Try!

I have not had chance to alter this recipe to make alternative flavours, but here are some ideas that you may want to try. If you do please let me know how you get on

Milk/Dark chocolate - Replace the white chocolate with milk or dark chocolate. As the different chocolates have a different sugar contents there may be alterations in quantities required to ensure a good set

Raspberries - Addition of raspberries to the white chocolate, this would reduce the sweetness. However these two ingredients go well together. Freeze dried raspberries are intense in flavour and would enhance the flavour. Fresh raspberries would provide a pink colour, so you could not only adjust the taste but adjust the look of your cake.
