First melt the chocolate and butter gently over a pan of boing water (make sure bowl does NOT touch chocolate) or do quick gentile bursts in the microwave. Then let the mixture cool.
Whilst mixture is cooling, weigh out and sieve icing sugar into a separate bowl.
Then add the golden syrup to the chocolate and butter melted mix. TIP: leave spoons in a glass of hot water, it makes it a lot easier for the syrup to come of the spoon!
Then stir in the sour cream to the chocolate mix. (Until completely stirred in)
Add the vanilla extract
Then slowly sieve in the icing sugar and mix with beaters, it does seem like a lot at first but it will disappear into the chocolate!
It should look like this, once cooled the mixture will become a bit thicker. Now spread it on your cake creation!
