Looking for a high gloss c hocolate cupcake frosting recipe

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I've been working as a baker at my new/second workplace... totally out of my comfort zone, but I've been doing it for a few weeks now, and am surprised how comfortably I've settled into the role, especially since I hated it so much at the beginning. Anyway, last week I made a few hundred cupcakes for a wedding, and made a couple buttercream fostings, and a glossy choco ganache topping, and got so many lovely compliments, not only on the taste, but also on how well they looked. I personally thought the buttercream was too sweet, but I'm not a cupcake person, cannot honestly remember the last time I had a cupcake with frosting in my life. I've made cc's for my husband at home, but without frosting, because he mainly likes to taste the batter.. :rolleyes: but can you blame him?

 

 

Anyway...I have to make more cupcakes on Thursday for another wedding, not sure what buttercream we're going to use yet, and might not even need a choco one, but I came across these pics, and would love to have the recipe in my file for future events.

 

I'm looking for a frosting exactly like this! not something like it, or close to it, but exactly like these pictures. if anyone knows the secret, please share, I would be extremely appreciative. Thanks.

^^^ That.... Except the shine is most likely from a bit of corn syrup.

That looks like straight up cooled (room temp) Ganache, once in the fridge the shine will disappear.

A verrrry thick ganache.

Toss in oil or corn syrup or butter and you will have the high shine.

And I agree, once in fridge bye bye shine.

A very rich tasting topping.
