My son is getting married next month. I am making 75 cup cakes for the rehearsal dinner. any suggestion would be wonderful how many cup cakes will this recipe frost. and what are the best frostings that will hold up to pack and transport. Its 11/2 hr away. any ideas to make a cup cake display would also be helpful. thanks

I am NOT a fan of american buttercream a I prefer meringue based ones but gave this a shot. Followed the weights exactly, and let it whip until very fluffy and the sugar was absorbed so it wasn’t gritty. Just awesome, thanks!

I think it’s because I didn’t cream the sugar and oil (i was out of butter and I read that oil can substitute for butter). Does creaming the sugar and oil really make a difference ?

And the best of course is that you share it with us! I made 36 cupcakes for my husband’s birthday to take to work this week and I used your chocolate frosting. I got so many compliments! It is so easy to make and the best I’ve tasted. Since my husband is diabetic it is also nice that it is not so sweet. Thanks for all your effort!

Stifting it well. Dont know if it works just as good as original cakeflour?

Luana, I am also using Silver Spoon icing, but what I found works best is to just put about 2 teaspoons of milk, then see if you need more (you probably won’t.) Also, I did not let the butter soften too much before starting to mix it. I actually put everything in the bowl all together and mixed it. I also used cold milk (I do not have any patience to wait :))
Hope you find this useful!

The brand is called Silver Spoon. It is normal icing for cakes and buns….

Really dont see what I am doing wrong :( I will give another try :D

Fondant icing is meant to be mixed with water to make it into a pourable icing. You should be using Confectioners sugar/powdered icing sugar for frostings. What brand is it? Squires Kitchen? I know they have some fondant icing that they say can be mixed with butter/liquid this should be a very soft smooth frosting.

Thank you for taking the time and replying….

I am in Bordeaux, France, warm weather but not boiling hot….

I have tried to the chocolate Frosting(recipe above), and also a nice fluffy Vanilla Buttercream. I always follow the recipe by heart. I thought maybe it was the icing sugar(so my lovely husband brought with him from england 4kilos! of fondant icing! ). It is getting better but still soft….Does it make a difference that I am using a hand held mixer? Or should I just add less liquid?

Thank you sooo much for your help!!!
Luana

Be careful not to add to much liquid. It could also be because if the weather is very warm.
