    Question Chocolate icing?

    Yup I'm dumb - how do you make it from scratch?



    I have cocoa and icing sugar... now where do I go from here?

    I need to cover up my dry crappy chocolate cake I made earlier - so thought I could have chocolate icing with sprinkles and it would be edible... lol

    You can either add a little water to icing sugar and cocoa or Butter works good, a bit more like ganache.... yuuuum...

    I do the cocoa powder, icing sugar and a bit of milk (milk that Em can have) and make it as thick as I can.

    I do 1 cup icing sugar with 1/2 cup cocoa and butter/nuttlex. If that is too thick, I add a drop or two of water in it until it is the consistency I want.

    I do about 50 grams of butter and then mix in the icing sugar and cocoa. Bit by bit I add more icing sugar and a little boiled water until I get the amount and the consistency perfect. I taste as I go of course - just to be sure!

    It would have been really dark because of the amount of cocoa. You can never have too much icing though
