It’s hard to say for sure without actually reading the receipe but typically white chocolate is paired with orange and cranberry.  I think that’s mainly because white chocolate is a more mellow flavor and the dark chocolate sometimes overpowers the other flavors.  If you prefer a dark chocolate icing, I’m sure you can find another recipe that is specifically for dark chocolate squares.

Dark chocolate has a much stronger and much more bitter flavor than white chocolate, so it will def change the flavor profile.  I would just use a vanilla buttercream.  🙂

That should be fine.  They are pretty much the same, but as a PP said, its more about taste!

I personally love dark chocolate with orange and cranberries, so think that would be fine! It is more bitter, but can therefore offset some sweet.

If you want to go dark, don’t go full out with 70-80% pure.  I’d look for something that’s around 50-60% so it’s not as bitter.  Also make sure you get good quality chocolate, not hershey’s or whatnot.  When you melt it down it should have a beautiful shine to it.
