White chocolate frosting, which can be used for a most delightful wedding cake filling is so easy to make you won't even believe it. Check out the recipes below and see.
This delicious slice of wedding cake is an orange butter cake with white chocolate icing and filling, with the addition of raspberries.
This recipe starts with the easy buttercream recipe which is simply unsalted butter, powdered sugar and flavoring (vanilla, almond, lemon extract etc...)
This is really a non recipe because it is done by taste. Brgin with 2-4 lbs of softened butter and beat until light and fluffy. Then add confectioners or powdered sugar until it has reached the sweetness level that you prefer. Then add the flavoring. A teaspoon of lemon, almond or vanilla.
The next step towards the wonderfully rich white chocolate frosting is to melt (very carefully) the white chocolate and add it to the buttercream.
This can be made sweeter by adding more powdered sugar, you may also want to add more melted chocolate to taste.
Make your buttercream by beating the softened butter until fluffy, add the extract and the sugar and continue beating until smooth.
Melt 10 ounces of white chocolate in a double boiler over low heat, stirring constantly. It takes a little bit of work to get it smooth
TIP: add a few drops of oil to the chocolate as it melts to smooth it out a little more. I sometimes use this little trick.
Add the melted chocolate to the buttercream and mix well.
