This easy icing has a wonderful gloss, and makes pretty decorations when used with a piping bag. Made using the Hand Mixer.

 

Ingredients

  • 240g (8¾ oz) plain, good quality chocolate
  • 200ml (7fl oz) sour cream or crème fraiche

Method

  1. Melt the chocolate in a bowl.
  2. Remove from the heat and cool a little. Using the beaters on a slow speed, whisk in the sour cream, giving the mixture time to darken and shine.
  3. As soon as it is firm enough to spread, smooth over the cake with a table knife.
