BUTTER CREAM ICING (BUTTERCREAM FROSTING)



Butter Cream Icing (Buttercream Frosting) image

I use Recipe #95416 when I'm decorating a cake but we like this version on brownies, cookies or undecorated cakes. I cut the recipe in half for brownies. Goes really well on Recipe #2496. Freezes well also. (If you have leftovers, put it between graham cracker for a delicious snack or dessert. My kids love it that way!)

BASIC BUTTERCREAM ICING



Basic Buttercream Icing image

This is a recipe that was given in the packet from a workshop I took at the Wilton school. It is a very good recipe and isn't exactly like any of the other buttercream recipes I saw! Great for decoration or for icing (once it is thinned with a little milk/cream). The picture is of a cake with royal icing roses and 3 Tbs of Kahlua added to the buttercream.
