Bakery Frosting Recipe

"Mom used this sweet frosting for all of our family's birthday cakes," recalls Barbara Jones of Tower Hill, Illinois. "Now I use it on cakes for our three preschoolers." A big batch keeps for quite a while in the refrigerator and is cheaper than canned frosting. More Homemade Frosting Recipes»

"As a novice cake decorator who loves to decorate cakes for my family, I love this recipe for use as a decorator frosting. I've read some of the comments about how it has a lot of shortening, well butter cream decorator frostings do contain lots of shortening. This recipe however has the advantage of the powdered creamer in it which makes the frosting creamier and smoother. The creamer adds to the flavor along with the almond flavoring. It works well in a decorator bag as well as spreading it with a knife. I love this recipe much more then to standard butter cream decorator frosting recipe."

"I don't usually write bad reviews, buttttt......this really is awful!! It doesn't resemble any bakery frosting I've ever had. No matter what flavor you add to it I feel like I have a mouth full of shortening! And powered non-dairy creamer is something I've never liked and don't know why its even added to the frosting. I wouldn't recommend this recipe."
