Need frosting advice for Valentines cupcakes

karykat | Feb 12, 2010 11:58 AM

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?

Other ideas?
