Quick Chocolate Frosting
Who does not love chocolates? Let everyone have this guilty pleasure as your frosting in your simple yet extravagant wedding cupcakes. Too sweet and comfortable to make, this frosting could be the base of your cupcake topping decoration or even tube it up for chocolate flower toppings!
What you Need
250g unsalted butter at room temperature, chopped
1 1/2 cups (240g) icing sugar
1/4 cup (25g) cocoa powder
2 tablespoons (40ml) milk
What to Do
Sift icing sugar and cocoa powder in a large bowl. Mix the powder ingredients together with milk and the butter using an electronic mixture in low speed. Continue mixing until the mixture is well combined, then turn mixer into high speed for about five minutes. Scrape remaining mixture from the mixers to avoid wasting some portions.
If you want to have the vanilla version of the frosting recipe, just substitute cocoa powder with a teaspoon of vanilla extract and increase icing sugar to two cups. This frosting would be better if you want to enhance and show colors through your plain vanilla base.
The Design with the Toppings
Special as it is named, special it should be served. From the taste to the base, now we come to the main phase of the preparation, the cupcake toppings! You could have fun fondant shapes as designs or just have those simple mini ball-like silver toppings on sides of piped designs. You could even have those ready-to-put toppings if you want to, if you don’t want to consume much time. Here are some wonderful topping ideas for the groom and the bride.
Our hearts at the top. You could use a swirl design out of the Chocolate Frosting recipe and use food cutters of increasing sizes to form hearts out of rolled fondants you bought from your nearest baking supplies shop. Layer out heart-shaped flat fondants - it would be better if they are of varying colors – before putting up at the top of the frosting swirl. Some simple ideas: just have two heart shaped fondant toppings erected at the top of the frosting swirl. If the theme is conservative, you could prefer rose fondant topping or just mere edible pearl candies.
Vanilla hues. Using the Vanilla version of the frosting, you could add different edible icing colors to brighten up the whole base. You could use them to fill a flat base to accentuate medium-sized toppings or just have candy toppings laid in the cupcake. You could have that alternate pink and blue vanilla frosting and put alternating candy flower and chocolate bow ties. Or to have more touch of the couple, you could use letter-shaped fondant toppings with the bride and groom’s initials as designs. You could also use figures to signify the date of the wedding or the couples favorite numbers.
Through black and white. Why think of the toppings when you could have the simple one? Following the concept of union, you could use both the vanilla and chocolate frostings to show the bride and grooms reunited once more with the wedding cupcakes. You could first put the vanilla swirl frosting and surround the edges with the chocolate frosting, or vice versa. The technique here is to use bigger-holed piping instrument for the main swirl and use squeeze bottle for the edge frosting. Then accentuate the design with red or blue ribbons below the cupcake paper lining, then having tiny edible shining pearl candies or gold bolts around. You may even use orchid-like flower candies to surround linings of the cupcake. If you want, it is preferably more beautiful to pipe flower bouquet frosting alternately with the chocolate and vanilla flavors.
There are infinite decorating ideas using fondant or candy or chocolate toppings. Just follow this rule of thumb: If you are to personalize and prepare fondant toppings for yourself, you must remember to prepare it ahead of the wedding day. Anyone could experiment with this, jus as how it should fit with the wedding them – may they be floral, beach, funky, or plain conservative ones.
