How to Make a Chocolate Frosting for Cakes Using Tulip Products
Contrary to popular belief, people do judge a book by its cover. And so do they when they look at a cake. The look and design of your cake are often the first selling point when a customer comes into your shop. And having a top-notch chocolate frosting will ensure the best “paint” to work with on your canvas.
The frosting needs to have the right consistency, and its texture should be soft but stiff enough to make a curled shape. To get the right consistency, Tulip has some tips and product recommendations you can use.

This easy-to-make recipe will tell you how to make a delicious chocolate ganache, which you can use as chocolate frosting and decoration for your cakes.
First, you need to melt the Tulip 62 Dark Couverture Chocolate. You can melt it in the microwave or use the bain-marie technique (double boiler).

Additionally, you can also stir in vanilla extract and powdered sugar for extra flavor and sweetness. That’s it! Your chocolate ganache is ready to be used for chocolate frosting.
3. Using Tulip Chocolate Compound Block Products
You can also use compound chocolate blocks the way you would couverture chocolate. By turning your compound chocolate blocks into chocolate ganache, you can easily make some delicious chocolate frosting that looks as beautiful as it is delicious!
We have several types of chocolate compound block products with a variety of flavors you can choose from. We have dark, milk, white, and strawberry compound chocolate block products.
