Would this frosting work for cake decorating? I would need to color and pipe on.

Hi Lynette, I don’t think it would work as a piped frosting as it doesn’t contain shortening (I think shortening helps retain the shape when piped?), but if you try anything out I would love to hear how it goes!

Thank you! I went a different direction making your chocolate fudge cake & chocolate buttercream. It was delicious but if you have a piped recipe I’d love it for the future.

The Pinterest “Pin It” button doesn’t work for this recipe 😢 Could you please fix it?! Thanks 💕

Hey Cassandra, Oh my apologies! We’re in the midst of switching my blog to a new theme in the coming weeks. Hopefully we’ll get one working soon!
