Chai Buttercream Frosting Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 2)
Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
As an icing this is really good, it's a bit soft for a true buttercream. I added one extra tea bag to my 1/4 c water and I could just taste the tea. I might even suggest using 4 tea bags if you want a noticeable chai flavor. I used this to fill and crumb coat my birthday cake, then I covered it with the rolled buttercream fondant. Very good!

Didn't have much of a true Chai taste to it. I added ground cinnamon and settled on it as a vanilla with a subtle taste of Chai...perhaps using less sugar would solve the problem? It yields quite a bit of icing as it is.

This was nice for a frosting. The chai was subtle enough that it wasn't overwhelming but i also only used a tablespoon of the chai water. The recipe itself is huge and i think the proportions were off a little bit for the thickness i wanted for my cookies. I cut the recipe in half because i didnt need that much but it was so watery i had to keep adding more sugar. I would suggest mixing everything else first and then adding the sugar until you get the consistency you want.

Great frosting recipe when it comes to the consistency. I've tried two other recipes on here that were crapola, but this once has a great, firm texture. I give it 4/5 stars, however, because I personally didn't find the taste of the chai to be strong enough over the sugar (I combated this by adding extra cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove). I'll definitely reference this one again.

This buttercream is wonderful!! Especially on chocolate cake. Only one thing I had to change, you never want to put any tea into "boiling" water. Bring water to a boil, remove from heat, after it quits bubbling, then add tea bags.
