Is cadbury still around or has she name changed? She posted a really nice looking recipe for a chocolate cake with icing made using evaporated milk.
I can't seem to get it right
I've tried to make the icing twice and each time it's ended up a split, grainy, grumpy mess. I heat the evap milk and sugar up nice and slowly til the sugar's melted, then simmer softly for 5 mins or so, then i take the pan off the heat for a few mins and then add the G&B's dark chocolate but minutes later it's all split. Mixing in the lumps of butter doesn't do anything to help - it just looks like a bowl of grainy stuff surrounded by oil...
What am I doing wrong ( <wail> )? the recipe sounds lovely and my ds's 2nd birthday is coming up so i was planning on making his cake this time. would you have any ideas or tips?
