Love this recipe........ Made some double chocolate cupcakes and used this recipe but added some raspberry extract. They turned out amazing, my first time making frosting :) super simple and fast.
For those that rate this as a "bad" recipe probably have not had a lot of practice with frosting. It's a technique, like anything else. I use this basic base of ingredients and make wonderful frostings. Too stiff? add a little milk? too thin, add some sugar. Pretty simple. You do need to beat this with an electric mixer to get the creamy texture you desire.
This is so great! I made a homemade yellow cake with chopped up strawberries mixed in. This icing is perfect for my new take on a strawberry shortcake!! I love it.
TASTE SO GOOD! Came out perfect, I just added like half a tablespoon of extra milk. I am putting my icing on homemade cupcakes I made!
I'm delighted with so many recipes to choose from. I love the homemade frostings because from one basic recipe you can make different flavors just by changing one or two ingredients. Thank you so much for sharing them with us.
