Cook's Notes:

The vanilla can be substituted with any other extract. I always use clear vanilla extract with this recipe to make it nice and white.

Perfect icing recipe for the carrot cake I made. I didn't like using cream cheese for frosting since 9 out 10 carrot cake frosting recipes posted call for cream cheese. The only thing I modified was using confectioner sugar instead of granulated as the recipe suggested. I'm sure there are plenty of lactose intolerant people out there would consider this recipe as a wonderful option since it turned out superb! Read More

This is nothing more than a sweetened whipped cream. I find many Black Forest cakes use a stabilized whipped cream. This is good in a hurry but I will try to find a durable frosting to be able to decorate any more Black Forest cakes I make. Read More
