Chocolate Mousse Icing


  • 1 1/2 cups cream, cold
  • 225 g chocolate, melted, warm


  • Whisk cream in a medium bowl until soft peaks form and then pour in warm chocolate and mix quickly to incorporate
  • Refrigerate until cool and place in a piping bag and pipe on cupcakes immediately. If it chills too much it will get too stiff so only chill about 5-10 minutes
