Don’t you just love a pretty cake? Regardless of the occasion, frosting helps to make the cake special. You will not believe how easy it is to make homemade frosting. Plus flavor is so much better than canned frosting.
There are those cakes that only need a simple glaze while others demand a rich buttercream frosting. My easy frosting recipes call for only all natural ingredients. For extra rich flavor, I only use real butter and whole milk or cream.
Is There a Difference Between Frosting and Icing? Yes! Made with butter or cream, frosting is thick and fluffy. It can be used between layers and on the outside of the cake. Because of its thickness, frosting is perfect for piping on a cake or for making fun embellishments such as little rose buds and leaves.
Icing is a sugary glaze. As it cools, the glaze hardens and becomes glossy in appearance. Icing is typically used for cookies, pastries and doughnuts. I like to add icing to angel food and and Bundt cakes. The icing adds a touch of sweetness that is just right for these delicate cakes.
