What Is Everyone's Favorite Frosting On Cake?

thought it would be an interesting idea to come up with your favorite frosting and share the recipe with us.some of my all time favs are:

1--CHOCOLATE BUTTER CREAM FROSTING:

1/2 cup Butter, softened
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
Dash salt
1/4 cup whipping cream
1 (1-ounce) square unsweetened baking chocolate, melted
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  1. Beat butter in medium mixer bowl at medium speed until creamy (1 to 2 minutes). Gradually add powdered sugar, cocoa and salt alternately with whipping cream and melted chocolate, scraping bowl often, until well mixed (2 to 3 minutes). Stir in corn syrup.
2---CHOCOLATE FUDGE FROSTING:
  • 2 squares unsweetened chocolate ,
  • 1/2 cup milk or light cream ,
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar,
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
Melt chocolate over low heat, add milk and sugar, boil until a few drops form a soft ball in cold water. Add butter and vanilla. Let stand undisturbed a few minutes, then beat until thick enough to spread. If too thick, stir in a little cream.


3---EGG LEMON FROSTING:

Ingredients:

1 c sugar
2/3 c lemon juice
2 eggs
4 egg yolks
6 tbs butter

method:

Combine sugar,lemon juice in 2-quart saucepan.Cook over medium heat until sugar is dissolved(1 to 2 minutes).Reduce heat to low.Beat eggs and yolks in a small bowl with wire whisk.Stir small amount of hot sugar mixture into egg mixture using wire whisk.Gradually stir egg mixture into hot sugar mixture.Continue cooking,stirring constantly,until mixture is thickened(6 to 8 minutes).Remove from heat,stir in 6 tbs butter,1 tbs at a time with wire whisk.

my absolute fave is the icing from entenmann's brownie crumb ring. it's mocha-maple frosting coated in finely crumbled brownies.

i'll see if i can find the copycat recipe.

edited: here's the closest recipe i've found to entenmann's.

mocha maple frosting

Ingredients:

3 cups sifted powdered sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine
3 tablespoons cocoa
1/3 cup Pepsi-Cola
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Tablespoon strong cold coffee
1/4 cup maple syrup

Combine sugar, butter, cocoa, Pepsi-Cola, vanilla extract, maple syrup, and coffee in small bowl. Beat until smooth. Spread on warm cake. you may have to add a little more powdered sugar if the frosting isn't thick enough for you. I like it to drizzle down the sides of a bundt cake.

The only frosting that I can stomach anymore is any of the whipped. The sugar frosting is just too sweet.

Am not sure this is the recipe I use to use (and loved) or not, but I think it is close.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Frosting



6 ounces chocolate chips

cup butter (can use margarine)

cup to cup sifted confectioners sugar

1 cups peanut butter



Melt chocolate chips and butter in a double boiler. Add confectioners sugar and peanut butter and beat until smooth. Chill for about 15 minutes or until frosting is of spreading consistency Will cover 2 8 inch layers.

oh, ok, i was just posting the frosting. the entenmann's cake is just a standard whitish/yellow cake in a bundt ring form (not sure what to call it. i'm not a baker in any sense of the word), the icing goes over it and down the sides (the best ones have icing filling the hole in the middle), then fairly dry brownies are crumbled over it, sticking to the icing.

David's 21st birthday is in a few days. EEEEKKKKK, my son is so old! He loves peanut butter so I think I'll make a white cake and then use this frosting. It sounds delish.
