Need frosting advice for Valentines cupcakes
I have these really cool paper heart shaped molds. So I'm making small Valentines cakes in them to give away.
I'll be using a chocolate cake recipe.
Some will have a chocolate frosting. Think I'll make a ganache for that one.
But some will have a light frosting tinted pink (with little chocolate candies around the heart outline.) I'm trying to pick out a frosting recipe for this last one. Was thinking of a cream cheese frosting but will that tint well or will it look kind of yellowish? What would be better.
I haven't made a 7- minute frosting in eons. Always thought those are too sweet. But maybe that's the answer here?
Expensive, but a mascarpone frosting with a hint of lemon is really nice. It'll be slightly yellow, but shouldn't affect a pink tint enough.
If you live near a TJs and want powdered fruit, they have freezedried strawberries that will work. But i have also just used jam.
Anyway, cream cheese won't be that yellowish - I find it tints just fine depending on how pink you want it.
