How To Make Chocolate-Sour Cream Frosting

Frosting is one of the most straightforward items to prepare in the kitchen. An electric hand mixer may be used in order to make it keeping the task easy. Begin by choosing a bowl with tall sides in order to keep the mixture contained.

Cupcakes may be baked ahead of time, then finished with frosting the day they are planned to be served. Be certain the butter has had ample time to soften at room temperature. If the step is overlooked, it may be placed in the microwave on High power for 5 second bursts until the right consistency is achieved. Place all of the ingredients in the bowl, then begin the mixing process. It will appear too thick at the start, however do not be tempted to add any additional sour cream in order to thin it – just keep blending for the specified amount of time. The coloration will begin dark & lighten by the end of the process.
