I'm so Frustrated!

I'm so frustrated right now.. I thought I will be able to make it right this time, but to no avail..
All I wanted to make is a pipable, glossy, chocolate fudge icing that we usually see in bakeshops. Is that hard to achieve? Thought it was easy... I'm sooo depressed.. huhu!

Anyway, I saw a chocolate fudge recipe online, I think it was just okay.. so here's the actual recipe:

1 c. sugar
1 c. water
4 tbsp. cocoa powder
6 tbsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. oil
1 tsp. vanilla

I just followed the recipe, combined the first five ingredients over medium heat, stirring constantly until it starts to boil and get thick, removed it from fire and stirred in the oil and vanilla. The texture was smooth and glossy, it looks perfect but not the taste. The taste is just okay. Back to my story, the only thing I altered in the recipe to get it pipable was increase the cornstarch to 2 tbsp. It turned out great.. I've even practiced piping borders with it. It was lovely.

So now that I already knew…
