Milk chocolate fudge icing
Introducing milk chocolate fudge icing i.e. the only chocolate frosting you will ever need.
This icing is my go to chocolate icing. It pairs perfectly with everything from chocolate cake to a glaze for doughnuts.
No other icing will compare once you try this recipe.
If you’re not already sold, this icing is *SO* quick and easy to make. Four ingredients just melt together in the pan, and it’s done.
What is milk chocolate fudge icing?
A little different to traditional thick buttercream that is often piped onto cakes, this icing is smooth and glossy. Initially a little runny, it will quickly cool and set into a soft, squidgy and fudgy icing.
A thick layer of this icing on top of your cake will give an indulgent creaminess to the overall bake.
The icing will retain its glossiness once it has set, so it will also give your cake a beautiful and professional finish.
Thank me later!
